New experiment to happend this summer 2008. Could end in making of mini-black holes on earth.

The Large Hadron Collider Is going live this summer.

Earth 'not at risk' from collider is the topic of this news bulitten.
Critics are worried that mini-black holes and stranglets made at the soon-to-open facility on the French-Swiss border might threaten the Earth's very existence.

But the report, issued the European Organization for Nuclear Research, says there is "no conceivable danger". Ehm that made me feel a lot safer lol.

The organization - known better by its French acronym, Cern - will operate the collider underground in a 27km-long tunnel near Geneva.

This Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a powerful and complicated machine, which will smash together protons at super-fast speeds in a bid to unlock the secrets of the Universe. Well it wouldent hurt to know as long as it dosent kill us all.

Most physicists believe the risk of a cataclysm lies in the realms of science fiction. But there have been fears about the possibility of a mini-black hole - produced in the collider - swelling so that it gobbles up the Earth.

Critics have previously raised concerns that the production of weird hypothetical particles called strangelets in the LHC could trigger the mass conversion of nuclei in ordinary atoms into more strange matter - transforming the Earth into a hot, dead lump. "WoW that dosent sound very cool".

This has bee a topic on this site before i reccon. But this summer its going live. I just hope to God its a safe maskin to use in a experiment.

Some links to info.

First of all there's tons of threads on this on ATS.

Second, Experiments like these have been carried out alot on earth already, this is just a larger version of what we've done before.

Third, there'll always be someone screaming "in the back of the room" about the risks, this goes for anything. If there was even a slight chance off total destruction of earth, do you really think they'd go through with it? Do you think they're stupid? They have acknowledge that there MIGHT be a very very small chance of a black hole forming but it'd last alot less then a millisecond before disappearing again.

The theory of 'black holes' is full of it's own holes. Plasma Cosmology suggests that black holes don't even exist at all, and that black hole theory is merely an attempt to explain a flawed theory of gravity.

plenty of info on the subject at

Plasma Cosmology is slowly overcoming many of the flaws in current scientific theories. If only scientists and researchers were not so damn unwilling to admit when they are wrong, we would have a much better understanding of our universe.

Point being: We won't all die, the earth won't get destroyed.

Another example of this kinda paranoia was before the first nuclear bomb test, some people (scientists?) believed that the entire atmosphere would go up in a boom because of a chain reaction.

I think the strange matter conversion would be the better death. Maybe God will let us vote on which form of mass destruction will be our doom.

The strange matter conversion is interesting because it could plausibly take out the rest of the universe eventually.

Let's face it, if we are going to be paranoid about implausible ways to die, it might as well be about strange particle conversion. I mean it sure beats getting hit by a frozen football of waste tossed by an airliner, for example.

If im not mistaken this has something to do w/ the philadelphia experiment on a grand scale. instead of 1.43 miles of magnetic wire they are using 17 miles worth. We will never know there true intentions. like (h aarp)
