Thumbs down Will the world end tomorrow?

Will the world end tomorrow (10th Sept.) when the scientists fire up the 'CERN Atom Smasher' on the Swiss/French Border?

"Critics of the Large Hadron Collider - a 4.4 billion machine due to be switched on on 10th Septemper - have lodged a lawsuit at the European Court for Human Rights against the 20 countries, including the UK, that fund the project.

The device is designed to replicate conditions that existed just a fraction of a second after the Big Bang, and its creators hope it will unlock the secrets of how the universe began.

However, opponents fear the machine, which will smash pieces of atoms together at high speed and generate temperatures of more than a trillion degrees centigrade, may create a mini-black hole that could tear the earth apart."
