I recently learned about a facility that experiments with protons and antiprotons. The term that is used is Trevatron. Apparently its a collision
course for protons and antiprotons. Its ran by 500 employees that carry out these experiments. So I'm assuming that most of these 500 employees are
actual scientist that have assembled together to test these collisions. I'm not sure yet if this facility was created by the government or not. But
it sounds like something they would invest our tax dollars into. Anyway I don't know about anyone else on this website but these kinds of experiments
are starting to grow in size. There is the other facility that is located in another country that's shooting protons with lasers and another that is
spinning atoms together in some type of machine. I'm sure there are other facilities we know nothing about. But apparently protons and neutrons and
also atoms are nothing to play with. These people are toying with them like its all just fun and games. Maybe I'm just being foolish here and a nerd,
but the last I heard blackholes are extremely deadly. I mean there would be nothing left of earth not a trace. Blacckholes devour whole galaxies. I
mean sure if the world was going to end and we had a choice in how it would end I'd probably vote for blackhole. Since you wouldn't feel it and all.
You'd just be to torn into countless pieces instantly. I just wanted to get other peoples opinions on this subject. Even if they didn't create a
blackhole, I'm sure that there is something that could be a result of these little harmless experiments.

Well op...... where to begin....first a slight insult, dont take this the wrong way please, but I have never seen somone know what a blaxk hole would
do to you, yet not know about the tevatron at fermilabs in illinois, and also be ignorant of the biggest of all the LHC large hadron collider at CERN
in geneva switzerland.
Go ahead and google these key words, fermilabs tevatron LHC cern, it will blow your mind op!!!!
You seem to be plenty smart, but simply ignorant of the materiak, which is perfectly fine, as ignorance is one of the easiest things to cure in the
world. It was about 17 years ago for me when I got started on curing mine, I am still jot there yet.......not looking good for the future either
So black holes. These are not necessarily planet, star or galaxy eaters. It simply describes a quantum singularity. This is somthing that occurs when
too much mass occupies too little space. Think of it as fire is simply to much heat occupying too little space in the right environment.
I can turn a single atom into a black hole, or singlarity, as I will describe it from here on out. Well ok not I personally, but it can happen, and
they infact do make it happen at cern using the LHC, not entire atoms mind you, but proton streams. They acceoerate them in opposing directions at
well over 99% of the speed of light, then switcy them onto the same track for a head on collision. They hit each other with 14 terraelectron volts of
energy, which is a tramendous amount when one thinks about the size of a proton, in more usable terms, they hit eachother with the same force a nimitz
class super carrier going 30 mph and hitting dry land. OUCH!!!
This is enough, to crack open the particles and release their building blocks. Somtimes a particle will be crushed so far it will have to much mass
for the amount of space it occupies, it will have an infinite mass gradient at 1 planck length, a planck length is the smallest ever theorised
explainable and quantifiable size. Suffice to say it is a point, a size so small it doesnt exist, yet so large it is quantifiable, meaning it is so
small it doesnt exist, but it is too large to say it doesnt.
These microscopic blackholes, dont have very much mass, the still only have the weight of the starting particle, itnis just occupying infinitely less
soace than before.
They usually simply evaporate from hawkings radiation in an actual instant, not truly even existing as far a human perception goes, as billions could
come and go in a single second. They are harmless to the earth and its matter, dont fear op, they pose little threat. I say little intentionally, as
there is a very small chance somthing could go badly, it is somthing 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999, 999 to 1,
actually I believe the number is way larger, but I got tired of typing 9s and 's. It is equivalent to a fully loaded and functional bugati veron
materializing out of the quantum foam in your drive way right after you wished for with a custom liscense llate and the keys in the ignition.
In short it will likely never happen.
Hope this helped, feel free to ask any more questions you have, or stop by the science forums, they are so sweet, they have abut everything you could
