a question about the Large Hadron Collider.

i know it is not possible but theoretically speaking if I put my hang in the Large Hardon Collider and the two particles wizz around and smashed into my hand what would happen?


would my hang just explode? would there be a big hole in my hand? or is the collision so small it wont effect my hand at all?

The beams at LHC contain enough energy, power, impulse, and are concentrated enough, that they bore a hole in the metal tube if steered badly.

Targets intended to absorb such a beam are difficult to design because of heating, among others.


By the way, electron beams are an industrial means to weld alloys, and these machines don't have the LHC's power.
