    Why exactly should we be worried about micro black holes? Something like that is not going to destroy anything except itself.

    Meh. Whatever. Shitty cg is shitty.

    If an organisation of all the best physicians in the world says it's safe, why would I believe two physicians who aren't working for them?

    It's save. Particle collisions in the atmosphere have more energy than their collisions. If such collisions would create black holes which swallow up the earth, then it would already have happened.

    Firstly, its in Europe, what the fuck has a US policy got to do with it. Its like wanting to drive a car and being asked if you have a license to pilot small aircraft.

    Secondly, producing black holes is one of the objective of cern, but they will likely be so small they will destroy themselves in the instant of their creation.

    Thirdly, divide by zero. Oh shi-

    Cool, so many people on Stoptazmo know about Physics, amazing. I think they won't do this experiment in CERN if it would be dangerous anyway.
    But that vid is nice. If there really would be a black hole, I guess it would just make plop and we're away in the next blink.

    I heard people here and in Russia are already working on dark matter weapons, I wonder what they can do with these?

    Scientists are still trying to figure out what dark matter is, so that rumour is most definitely false.

    If a black hole were to be created on the Earth, it wouldn't behave anything like that video, and it wouldn't just go "plop" and the entire planet disappears. It would be an extremely small black hole. Like Adonai said, chances are it would be a micro black hole with barely any mass and would dissipate in the instant after it was created. Even if it was slightly larger, it would most likely just fall into the centre of the planet and extremely slowly devour material, heating the planet from within and causing global warming on a larger scale. I don't think we'd feel a difference in gravity on Earth either.

    Maybe she meant anti-matter.

    But I don't think that a black hole would devour anything slowly. If it started big enough that it wouldn't just disappear immediately, then the more it pulls in the stronger it gets and I don't know what is the proportion of mass and gravity for black holes, i still bet it would be significantly bigger then earth's in a short while. And even if it did just sink into earth and eat it slowly it would still mess up earth because the first think it eats then would be iron and, poof, there goes the magnetic field.

    They've been doing this for a few years in Europe and in the US actually. Particle Accelerators and stuff you know. I'm hoping that CERN ends up a huge success.
