Large Hadron Collider Black Hole Fears: End of the World?

Large Hadron Collider and the Black Hole: The largest atom smasher ever built, the Hadron Collider, will get turned on Wednesday and some think it could destroy the world.

$9 billion has been spent in an effort to find the so-called “God particle”, a subatomic particle that up until now has only existed in theory.

The largest scientific experiment ever built, by man at least, is 100 meters below the Swiss countryside and will fire two beams of particles, at nearly the speed of light, towards each other, around a 17 mile circle.

The collision of the two beams is expected to produce a burst of subatomic fragments that have never been seen.

Scientists are hoping the impact’s results could give them insight into dark matter, which is believed to make up the bulk of space, and possibly prove the existence of the Higgs Boson, the so-called “God particle”.

Its detractors fear that mini Black Holes and ruptures in space could be caused as well and threaten the entire planet itself. But rest assured, it won’t happen.
