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