LHC Goes Live, World, Sadly, Does Not End
The world did not today end due to the start-up activity of the Large Hadron Collider. The fear of some was that the power of the Collider would cause a black hole to form which would swallow the earth and who knows what else. Those fears will have to stay in the realm of science fiction for the time being. Perhaps a movie with Hillary Swank, Ice Cube, Morgan Freeman, and, oh I don't know, Conan O'Brien could give the story of the the crack team that saves the world from science run amok disaster. It can't be any worse than the last three Star Wars films. Atom smasher or no, Earth still revolves around the sun.
