That black hole that was going to eat the Earth? Forget about it, and keep making the mortgage payments — those of you who still have them.

A new particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider scheduled to go into operation this fall outside Geneva, is no threat to the Earth or the universe, according to a new safety review approved Friday by the governing council of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or Cern, which is building the collider.

“There is no basis for any concerns about the consequences of new particles or forms of matter that could possibly be produced by the LHC,” five physicists who comprised the safety assessment group wrote in their report. Whatever the collider will do, they said, Nature has already done many times over.

The report is available at

Cause you know the earth and the milky way galaxy is suppose to collide with another galaxy, both of the black holes that line within the center of these galaxies will collide making one huge black hole in about 10 billion years. But you know you could worry about it now...

they could atleast make a black hole to suck up china
What have you got against China?

Well, as far as I'm concerned, I am not concerned. They had no real idea of what to expect when they made the first nuclear weapon and it didn't exactly destroy the planet as they feared it might. So I really don't care (too much) and am not going to worry myself over the iminent destruction of our planet :p

I wasn't really concerned about this, should I have been? I think I remember an article on th, but I was not really worried.


You can change this now in User CP.

Yeah, they shouldn't have said anything to the public anyway about black holes and all that, just gives some people reason to be paranoid I guess.
