I do not know exactly this system, but I do believe that this H bomb possibility is even more negligible than black hole and other fears. Helium is a product of usual fusion processes and amount of the accelerated particles is probable quite small to start some kind of chain reaction.

Actually, it was just starting today... The first real high-energy collision is on the 21st of October. According to my sources anyway.

Sounds interesting. I knew the British would kill us all eventually.


Sorry to dissapoint... but the machine is underneath Cern in Geneva..

We'll try to destroy the world some other time then eh?


Geneva, anyone notice something about this? xD

Upon Google....

Any-who, I don't think it will kill us all. If it does, okay, it does. Like HB said, if it does kill us all, you don't want to sit around moping that you'll die soon. We'll all die sometime -- when your life flashes before your eyes, make it worthwhile.

If it doesn't kill us, then oh lookie, you have another one or more year[s] to live. Don't spend those years panicking about the doomsday scare after this one, spend them living.

nope, the odds are actually higher than those of a stable black hole showing up. nuclear power plants are based on fission, which requires way less energy than fusion. in fact, there's no such a thing as fusion power plant because we don't have the technology to even deal with the ammount of energy released by industry-scale fusion.

the LHC is basically a big machine that produces a very tiny fusion reaction and tries to videotape it. there's a twist: its cooling system is actually fuel for a much higher-scale fusion reaction, and on top of that, the power produced by the particular fusion done in the LHC is of a scale much, much higher than what we could ever dream for a fusion-based power plant. and, like i said before, there's no known technology to deal with this kind of reaction: the self-sustained fission process we can produce today is of the "bomb" kind, never of the "power plant" kind.

Right, it takes a while for it to be fully ready to go. Today just started the process.

If it does engulf the earth, none of us would even know. Doesn't sound like a bad way to go right? I'd say it's better than any other possible way, so I say, LET'S GO BLACK HOLE!

Well, now that my/everyones hype about doomsday is down-ish...I wonder what they learned from it? I've always liked science so I want to know more! :D

I usually don't have time to come on the computer to research with starting highschool and all. And the homework.... overspannen

Btw, If we are going to die, it won't happen until they do some actual collisions in the lhc. (on Oct. 21?)

Actually, they predict it could take around 50 months for the man made black hole to stablise, grow and then suck in the earth.

Much talk about something that hasnt happened. I do not know how you find these sources, but there is no risk for the earth to be eaten. A black hole doesnt grow like this: wolfbite (the left head is the hole, the right one earth), it takes time, and besides the holes are WAY too weak to eat the machine, so you can just :puh: on LHC. And thats it tounge2
