Some people have feared that large particle accelerators could create a mini black hole that would sink the center of the Earth and gobble it up, but I think most physicists say that's impossible.

Also guys there is NO REASON to be worried about the collisions in CERN. Yes its possible that "mini black holes" as they have been called could be created but these will not act in any way like an actual black hole. And anyway, the collisions that will take place in CERN take place on earth all the time. The only difference is that they are being performed in a controlled atmosphere where the outcome can be measured.
