LHC scientists receiving death threats from nutballs

The Large Hadron Collider is just a few days from being switched on, but the scientists in charge of the 17-mile long super collider are already getting impassioned pleas to stop their work, some of the scientists have even received death threats…

On September 10th, scientists at the LHC will fire the first proton beams down the super collider. These proton beams will have a modest 450 GeV or less than one-tenth of the collider’s full strength and no collisions are expected because the beams will only be fired one way through the tunnel. Eventually CERN hopes the LHC help scientists discover the elusive Higgs-Boson particle by smashing together proton beams with 5-7 TeV worth of energy.

Some ignoramuses have theorized that such collisions could cause a miniature black hole to form and obliterate our planet, but such collisions in the form of cosmic rays have been occurring on Earth and other planets for a long time. In fact these collisions pack much more of a punch than anything the LHC can produce. However, this hasn’t stopped people from trying to stop the project.

MIT professor and Nobel Prize winning physicist Frank Wilczek is just one of the scientists who has received death threats in the past days.

But for anyone who’s thinks the LHC will end the world, Professor Brian Cox of Manchester University said, “Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the world is a t***.” Hey, wasn’t he supposed to use a more scientific word?

Scientific words of any kind mean nothing to the nutballs in tinfoil hats.

    You only have to look at the simple answers in order to understand the complex. Everything repeats on a larger and smaller scale. The only difference is mass pressure and gravity. What’s on the other side of a black hole? nothing but mass. Matter did not win out over anti matter. Space is the void or membrane around the ameba, so to speak. Think of the universe full of stars think of the gravity that mass has. What causes a tornado or the water to drain from your tub (in a whirlpool fashion?)Think of the empty space vs. gravity. Think of a universe opposite of ours full of nothing but matter. There the black holes are like stars. The universe is just playing tug of war with gravity. The big bang was the matter side spitting a bit up. When the pressure is to much you have a collapse and thus a black hole.
    If the mass is great on the other side, and the hole could cave in on itself and get larger. The question would be can they even open a small one. Think of how tiny the earth is. If they do open a small one I don’t think it will stay small for long. That is if I’m right.
