It's not an explosion they are worried about but rather an implosion, as in black hole. Or possibly causing another big bang.

But that's the paranoids spouting that crap, the safety report should have never stated those possibilities.

They're not actually doing collision tests tomorrow, but they will be shooting a proton beam inside the collider.

to even think that we can re-create the power required to do anything that happens in massive effects found only in the celestial bodies is naive.

Here's a 5 minute scientific outline of the project.

I have my crowbar ready, no head humpers are gonna get me.

Found this, very informative for the non-particle physicist types.

Lisa Randall from Harvard will be there to keep us safe.

She's my favorite Physicist right now. She will be hoping for some extra dimensions to show them selves. Maybe a brane or two.

Found these tonight, they give you a glimpse into the compact muon solenoid experiment.

Lol :lol: - hopefully its not a preview of coming events ;)

Teen commits suicide after 'end of world' reports
Quote:

A TEENAGE girl in central India killed herself on Wednesday after being traumatised by media reports that a "Big Bang" experiment in Europe could bring about the end of the world, her father said.

The 16-year old girl from the state of Madhya Pradesh drank pesticide and was rushed to the hospital but later died, police said.

Her father, identified on local television as Biharilal, said that his daughter, Chayya, killed herself after watching doomsday predictions made on Indian news programmes.

"In the past two days, Chayya had asked me and other relatives about the world coming to an end on Sept. 10," Biharilal was quoted as saying.

"We tried to divert her attention and told her she should not worry about such things, but to no avail."

For the past two days, many Indian news channels held discussions airing doomsday predictions over a huge particle-smashing machine buried under the Swiss-French border.

The machine, called the Large Hadron Collider, was switched on on Wednesday, at the start of what experts say is the largest scientific experiment in human history.

The machine smashes particles together to achieve, on a small-scale, re-enactments of the "Big Bang" that created the universe.
