Will the experiment create blackholes – the end of Earth?
Listen and watch … Eight more days to go before the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is fully turned on and scientists start with the new experiment/s. If it doesn’t do anything useful it will become the most expensive technological art on earth costing USD$6.5 billion (~8 billion AUD$s). Nuclear Physicist Walter Wagner talks about his concerns and suggests to delay starting of the huge Hadron Collider at Cern, Switzerland. Earth could well be in danger if anything goes wrong with the LHC and that it shouldn’t be started without further study. Mayan end calendar is also mentioned by people phoning in. You need to hear/watch this. Sometimes the science goes too far and this thing might be the big case this time.
The LHC can create even a few mini black holes with production rate about one per second. If there were some black holes produced I wish they will all evaporate or that they escape terminal velocity of our earth. The Hawking Evaporation Law / Hawking Radiation has not yet been proven regarding the mini black holes.
EDIT: It’s been a long time since its 1st test run. Therefore the old initial videos from that day have been removed since – for the freshest news please visit the Cern TV page on YouTube.
LHC experiment may create mini black holes that will swallow earth; WELL there was the Millenium Y2K bug before too wasn’t there? Life goes on as per normal for me. But fair dinkum!, on that day when these people run the machine I am staying at home with for whom I care the most. What will you be doing?
