Stop the scientists before they destroy us all! That's what a Hawaii man with a background in nuclear physics is asking a court to do. Walter F. Wagner and his colleague Luis Sancho have filed a federal lawsuit seeking to stop work on the Large Hadron Collider, a gigantic atom smasher on the Franco-Swiss border that's set to start operations in May.

Apparently, this scientist is concerned with the possibility that a blackhole could swallow up the planet, and has done this to prevent it.

what in the world is that...and why would we even want one of those! The name alone sounds ridiculous- clearly it has the power to destroy the planet...Whether or not this guy is right, the idea of "atom smashing" is for sure dangerous...This won't end well if we start manipulating atoms or destroying them(?)...
They think it probably won't destroy the planet, which is good enough for me[/sarcasm].
