I saw an alarming thing on the German Telly last night. Apparently there is a seriously good chance that the CERN particle accelerator could generate a sub-microscopic black hole as a by product of atomic collisions. The problem with black holes is that they can only grow. A professor of chaos theory was wheeled on who said that such a thing would inevitably gobble up the planet but it was impossible to calculate whether it would take five or a thousand years to do it. I find this possibility to be a seriously alarming one but I'm not enough of a physicist to be able to comment knowledgeably on it. If it is possible shouldn't these experiments be stopped right away? I don't think the tax payer should be funding the even theoretically possible vanishing of the planet.
