    I would NEVER say they is no chance, especially in a new technology, however I wouldn't let the extreme improbability of something like that happening stop it.

    Hell, if one takes a look at the nuclear science when it was in its infancy stage many didn't know what would EXACTLY happen.

    Ok if you want to get technical it has like a 1*10^-Google chance of happening.

    Sheesh.

    The LHC can't produce collisions at nearly high enough speeds for anything potentially dangerous even to happen. Particles collide with our atmosphere going many times faster, as has been stated endlessly to refute this nonsense. It just isn't going to happen.

    Having read numerous articles on the LHC, I will attempt to calm down the masses:

    ONE SECOND. It COULD last for ONE SECOND. Think about it.

    That being said, "one second" is a pretty long time compared to what they are expecting, but there is pretty much a nil chance of anything bad happening. Physics says that there is a chance that if you jump into a brick wall, you'll go right through it. It's very very small, but it's still there. Same thing here. There's a very small chance that it could potentially develop into a mini-blackhole lasting for about one second.

    Exactly how would they know how long it would last for?

    Some physicists believe a Black Hole is a type of reaction not yet undersood, actually burning matter (so to speak for basic understanding) and all the matter drawn to the reaction by it's rapidly increasing gravity is burned into a type of ash (so to speak for basic understanding) much smaller than our current comprehension.

    The one second may be all that is needed for the rapidly accelerating gravity to suck earth's matter into the reaction.....

    Oh it's all just a bunch of mouthfoaming by scientists. Who called this facility the Doomsday Machine? How silly is that?

    Truely you can't be serious!....

    Reminds me of how much they DIDN'T know about radiation from a nuke when they exposed thousands of military personal.

    By the way...most of science is "Trial and Error"

    MOSTLY ERROR!!!!!!!

    Scientists don't think that the LHC is going to destroy the universe. Only crazy people do.

    That article is, at best, op-ed. I've never seen a legitimate news story with that much opinion and speculation.

    If that was meant to be a news story, shame on Fox. If it was meant to be op-ed, big deal.

    I just looked and it was in the "Headlines" section.

    Deplorable.

    We can NOT turn on the supercollider. When the Galactic Empire destroys Earth to make room for a superhighway, why in the hell should we have to do that work for them? Make them earn their living, dammit.
