Question by mithun: what is the biggest machine of the world?
somebody says that the experimental setup for measuring the speed of the light in Fizo’s experiment is the biggest machine is that correct?
Answer by Warren
The biggest operating man made machine in the globe is the CERN LHC. The Bagger 288 comes in second. Here are the specifics of both machines for you.
The Bagger 288 is the largest digging machine in the globe. The bucket-wheeler excavator named Bagger 288 (Excavator 288) is constructed by the German company Krupp. Much more specifically, it is a mobile strip mining machine. It is the largest tracked car in the planet at 13,500 tons. Nevertheless, Bagger is powered from an external supply and is much more correctly described as a mining machine which can be moved, while the crawler-transporter was built as a self-powered, load-carrying vehicle.
The Massive Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator. It is now the worlds largest operating machine. It is expected that it will address the most fundamental inquiries of physics, advancing humanity’s understanding of the deepest laws of nature. The LHC lies in a tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as much as 175 metres (574 ft) beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland.
I have to make a comment concerning ‘Flossie’s’ answer as balderdash. If he/she had carried out a little analysis, telephony or communication networks are a series of enormous devices of which includes, computers, servers, satellites and transmission microwave towers, transmission wires, and not just ‘one’ machine. Just a point of correction.
Hope this assists you.
