CERN, the particle-physics center, will flick the switch on it’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on September 10th. This might not mean much to you, but it’s had a fair number of people worried for a while.
The idea is that by using this machine, scientists hope to find the ‘god particle’ or Higgs boson which will take particle physics into new directions and may give them the answers to research in to Black Holes, dimesional possibility and many other exciting prospects.
But what has really hit the news is the research (sometimes not quite scientific) that shows what could really happen if things go wrong. The most prolific of these ideas is that the LHC would create a Black Hole big enough to start swallowing the Earth. To show what this could be like, some inventive mind has put this together.
Other internet sites worth a read, if only for comedic value, such as this one spell out several ways we could be wiped out.
But the scientists who run the project are 100% confident that none of this is possible and the research will create very little in the way of harmful effects for the Earth. After all, what can go wrong with a prototype device and unknown science?
Hell, heres hoping the experiements aren't a big waste of time.

Too much Dr Who! ;¬P

Pretty soon you'll see the results of this when the pink bunnies start hopping out of your hedge and the birds hold their annual conference on human control...
I was expecting to wake up, have my breakfast, and see black holes floating around outside the conservatory. This has put a big downer on my day.
count down to (maybe) THE END OF THE WORLD!
