2. Infiltrate American community.
Sir, The USSR no longer exists. If you are talking about the remnants of this group, they do not have the power nor legitment reason to get information from america anymore.

I do believe he was jesting.

I will often edit my posts after I have posted them in an attempt to improve their clarity (I value a few high quality posts over several low quality ones; the more lengthy the post, the more time it requires to edit) so you might want to wait for a while if this post is recent and refresh to see if anything has changed before replying to it.

way that your particle accelerator would have any kind of use is if you could reach the Giga/Petavolt region, which you won't be able to do. Great idea, but not practical.

If you ever inherit a large sum of money (A few thousand) and you inherit it when you're mentally immature, put it into your bank account and leave it there until you grow, trust me on this one.

There is an electron accelerator in every old CRT television. You should never play around with them unless you know exactly what you're doing, though.

Forged in a fire lit long before,
I've been to hell now I'm back for more,
So cap the gas and push back the door,
Turn fuel to fire let the monster roar.

Ah. Even so... there is still little purpose to it.

In other words.... He never really created a particle accelerator. In fact his own telling of the story is nothing more than him blowing the all the fuses in his home by trying to run electricity through tons of copper wiring.
And most likely he just made the story up, and none of it really happened to begin with... at least not the way he describes it.
He has even stated he was photographing anti-matter at the time before he tried to create the accelerator... and he never tells his stories with any amount of detail.
In other words.... No one is going to be building a particle accelerator at home, and there is no value in building one.
You'd be much better off building a practical electric generator, like a dynamo... or something else useful that won't entirely waste your money or explode your electric circuits. At least with a generator you could possibly use it to charge some batteries or power some lights, or something like that...
