Researchers at the Large Hadron Collider successfully smashed together two beams of protons in the machine's particle accelerator for the first time on Tuesday
It is shown that, whatever the temperature to which a section of the atmosphere may be heated, no self-propagating chain of nuclear reactions is likely to be started.

some sources for your claims please
Hardly...and Phage didn't say that...the act of breaking a proton into it's smaller parts can teach us a whole array of things we have yet to learn about particle physics. It's all theoretical...and any theory has to be tested doesn't it?
So you think all that money was spent just to find the " god particle " ?
