If someone offers you knowledge, a lot of knowlede that may change our understanding of the universe and that could lead to still not imaginable
technological breakthroughs, improveing our technological possibilities,
but this to a price of a risk. A risk that to a small probabily during the process of gathering the knowledge you completly destroy the whole planet
and all it's life. Litteraly wipe out the humankind of the existence.
Would you take that risk?
It's not that you have a choose. The risk we will take in summer (july) 2007 when the Large Hardron Collider (LHC) in CERN takes up its work and
indeed is able to creates Mini-Black hole as the scientist hopes it is.
Should we worry about this Mini-Black-Holes?
Scientist of course say no:
"They decay immeditaly -> harmless"
check page 16:
but this is based on their theoretic still unproven modell, that black holes bleed out by radiateing Hawking radiation.
What if this assumption is wrong?:
And what when its true but they forget about a little thing like that a black hole grows when it is feeded with matter? Is there matter in the LHC
that could feed the black hole? Oh yes..the beams are not just 2 single protos but a number. Could be enough to feed the hole long enough to survive
till the concret LHC walls.
From then on it's unstoppable. I would say at the end it is all a matter of probability. Make use of a small probability and hope the best is
This will not be a one time experiment but a continues. Creating Mini-Black-Holes after Mini-black-Holes. It requires just one at the wrong time at
the wrong place to destroy the world.
Creating a beast (black-holes) and also when it is a mini we not even know enough about on earth is not a good idea. Yes the knowledge we can gain is
a hugh motivation, for me too, but I wouldnt take that risk. Too many unknown and risking all life is not something you should play with. In this case
I wonder, are our most clever scientist the most stupid people at the end?
I dont want to paint black. I hope that they did calculate everything through and it is sure that nothing can happen. I hope that their theorie is not
faulty and Hawking was right with his radiation theorie. And I hope that we learn a lot through this experiment.
There is a chance that they are not able to create black holes, then when their multi-dimension theorie is wrong.
On the other hand I read somewhere that this mini-black-hole could vanish into the other dimesnions, if so...isnt it then likely that it also could
appear somewhere else in 3d space again? Somewhere and (somewhen!) where it shouldn't be?
What do you think about this all?
