Okay, now I'm wondering(Potentially relevant link)
Were we to create an instance of the ninth gluon, would containment be destroyed, thus colouring the Universe, and allowing strong nuclear force to supplant electromagnetic force as the dominant force in the Universe, and in turn destroying all life in the Universe? (Just curious. . .)
And if it would, should we try anyway? I mean, it would probably suck for us to all die, but imagine the coolness factor.
Of course, maybe it wouldn't do any of this. Such a result would not be wholly unprecendented.
(I'm dreadfully uninformed about most physics.)
