Black holes, charmonia, Freemasons and you.

“It sounded pretty cool though – dying by black hole.”

Yes, the LHC is extremely cool – in fact, it’s so cool that even if it actually could create an Earth-destroying black hole it would still be pretty cool.

If the community is getting really excited about experimental particle physics just like the physicists are, then it’s a good thing.

Here’s a great post discussing, once again, the potential, or lack of, for experimental particle physics induced Armageddon.

As I write this, all LHC sectors should be cooled down, and first beam injections will be happening within the next month or so, I think.
