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?

I look forward in the future to build my own planet ruled by me, all my things diamond tipped or gold plated and maybe a perfect earth where ozone and pollution will be a thing of the past.

Hell, heres hoping the experiements aren't a big waste of time.

Did anyone see the Q & A with the media afterwards? Fat bloke waddled up, they clocked him, daily mail so he was completely shunned.

Superb

What you all don't realise is that we have actually all been sucked in to a parallel universe.

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...

MASSIVE DISAPOINTMENT


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.

there is also a possability that the whole experiment was a waste of time as it doesn't work and nothing happens. but we'll know soon enough...

count down to (maybe) THE END OF THE WORLD!

Also Timmargh found this, might be useful, basically it's a website updating the status of the LHC and it's affect on Earth:

I imagine it might reassure a few people.
