Hey people, do you really think that the black hole thing is going to happen on 10th?
Are we all going to die?
Is life going to be history?????
Well, no one has really thought of it that way.. everyone is thinking that its just false or something...
So whats your say?
The short answer is no, there is nothing to worry about at all.*
We have been kicking this one around on the Science Forums and the maths show that
*It is important to realise that formation of mini Black Holes would be a fantastic result for science - it would provide some evidence for M-Theory and would give us some wonderful new physics to play with.
** Steven Hawking puts the possibility at less than 1%. I think he is being overly optimistic (and the probability is more like 0.1% or less). Hawking would love the LHC to produce mini BHs because that would provide experimental confirmation of his theory and almost certainly win him a Nobel prize.
ok thanks for that! now i can go to skool without any worries!
The LHC is not going to cause the end of the world any time soon. All the scientific literature I have read maintains that the physics behind it shows that any exotic particles (or micro blackholes, for that matter) will decay in a very short time (on the order of micro or nano seconds, from memory).
Has the LHC destroyed the world?
An amusing and interesting link at the same time, Bikerman. Of course, if the LHC were to destroy the Earth, then nobody would be around to update that webpage...
If there was any risk to the planet,do you think any government in the world would of allowed this experiment to continue,the Americans get nervous when Russia take a few planes to Venezuela,if they thought for a second a few scientists in Switzerland were about to potentially end the world,im sure they and others would step in.
All theese hay-tek thingz confuze and bogle me mind...
Eh, what a waste. Just shows how, for LOADS of people, science, really is black magic.
Watch the experiment live at the link below.

Ha ha ha!!!!!!! oh my god that was funny!!!
