Why isn’t anyone worried about this. The fate of the world is in the hands of experimenting scientists. We could be destroyed if the mess up. … meh … I’ll go back to reading Digg. Sometimes risk is not worth the reward, think about Mr. science guy who wants to blow up the world.
“Three decades after its conception, half as long in construction, and several years behind schedule, the switch will finally be flicked on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, on 10 September.
Once up and running, the $10 billion machine will be world’s most powerful particle collider, smashing protons into each other at an energy seven times higher than that of the Tevatron collider in the US. Physicists will then be in uncharted territory, hunting for new particles that could overturn their theories about nature’s most fundamental laws.” (link)
