You have NO Idea if that is correct or not!
The scientist that are doing it, don't even know what is going to happen.
As to the post......... of trying to keep a dying thread going............. no, I have no need to do that, nor has it been a consideration................
I thought about what is happening and also read something about LHC - and questioned..................... could one thing be causing another!
That is the point................. so I will continue to post things in this thread about the Magnetic field............. if you don't like what I post...... etc........... no one is "forcing" you to read the thread..........
I will ALWAYS - Question........... what is going on and consider many aspects of it.

Think of it this way. If it were serious, the scientists would have spoken up by now.
What happened in 1859 was a combination of several events that occurred on the Sun at the same time. If they took place separately they would be somewhat notable events. But together they caused the most potent disruption of Earth's ionosphere in recorded history. "What they generated was the perfect space storm," says Bruce Tsurutani, a plasma physicist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
What transpired during the dog days of summer 1859, across the 150 million-kilometer (about 93 million-mile) chasm of interplanetary space that separates the Sun and Earth, was this: on August 28, solar observers noted the development of numerous sunspots on the Sun's surface. Sunspots are localized regions of extremely intense magnetic fields. These magnetic fields intertwine, and the resulting magnetic energy can generate a sudden, violent release of energy called a solar flare. From August 28 to September 2 several solar flares were observed. Then, on September 1, the Sun released a mammoth solar flare. For almost an entire minute the amount of sunlight the Sun produced at the region of the flare actually doubled.
"With the flare came this explosive release of a massive cloud of magnetically charged plasma called a coronal mass ejection," said Tsurutani. "Not all coronal mass ejections head toward Earth. Those that do usually take three to four days to get here. This one took all of 17 hours and 40 minutes," he noted.
