The Big Bang II

Posted on: September 10, 2008

Scientists have created a machine that will recreate the big bang. Excerpt from the news article:

If all goes according to plan, the Large Hadron Collider, a gigantic particle accelerator underground near Geneva, could re-create the very moment 13 billion years ago when scientists believe a tremendous explosion known as the “big bang” created the universe.

Read complete story here.

What has me wondering a bit is if they have taken all necessary precautions or thought the whole thing through. I mean this is a recreation of the big bang. What happens to everyone in the surrounding areas when or after they turn the LHC on? No tremors or other things that can trigger disasters?

I am all for change and anything that can improve the world and our understanding of it. Maybe they should have included some assurances in the news article that nothing untoward is going to happen so all of us cousins of Chicken Little (fifty five times removed) don’t get any ideas of the sky falling again.  😉
