"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
There IS a particle accelerator larger than Earth. Its larger than our entire Galaxy.
Its called the Universe.
A while back some people were concerned that the CERN particle accelerator might be creating " mini black holes " and it would only be a matter of time until one of those Black holes sets up shop and started sucking in Switzerland and then Earth and then everything.
Turns out the Universe bombards our atsmophere with Cosmic rays with energies that dwarf what the CERN Hadron Collided can produce and no Black Holes or Higgs Bosun catastrophes yet.
Plus, CERN would have to actually PROVE that Higgs Bosons exist.
What they found was a particle that BEHAVED like the Higgs Bosun should.
They haven't proven that it was a Higgs Bosun.
