Tomorrow CERN will fire up the particle accelerator to recreate the "Big Bang". Some fear we will create a blackhole by doing this experiment.

By Elizabeth Landau

CNN

(CNN) -- Deep underground on the border between France and Switzerland, the world's largest particle accelerator complex will explore the world on smaller scales than any human invention has explored before.

The collider's ALICE experiment will look at how the universe formed by analyzing particle collisions.

The Large Hadron Collider will look at how the universe formed by analyzing particle collisions. Some have expressed fears that the project could lead to the Earth's demise -- something scientists say will not happen. Still, skeptics have filed suit to try to stop the project.

The full article.

Damn, if the critics' fears come true and the earth is swallowed up by tiny black holes, we'll never know who would have won the election!

They should fire it up on election day when the last butterfly ballot in FL is counted, creating a quantum condition and splitting the universe into two: one where Obama wins and one where McCain wins.

This is obviously what e e cummings was referring to when he wrote: "listen; theres a hell of a nice universe next door; lets go"

No concerns.

Exactly. Imagine if new discoveries in particle physics where made in the U.S.----how terrible!

Proof, though, that sometimes scientists really shouldn't mess with things they don't understand...

CERN fires up new atom smasher to near Big Bang By ALEXANDER G. HIGGINS, Associated Press Writer

Sun Sep 7, 2:52 PM ET

GENEVA - It has been called an Alice in Wonderland investigation into the makeup of the universe — or dangerous tampering with nature that could spell doomsday.

Whatever the case, the most powerful atom-smasher ever built comes online Wednesday, eagerly anticipated by scientists worldwide who have awaited this moment for two decades.

The multibillion-dollar Large Hadron

The way I've been feeling recently I wish a black hole would open up and take me to another dimension.

Carry it with you, and as you're rapidly sucked into that growing black hole time will slow down for you and you'll have an eternity to watch it.

Then again, you might want grab a better show...
