CERN performed a study to investigate whether such dangerous events as micro black holes, strangelets, or magnetic monopoles could occur. The report concluded, “We find no basis for any conceivable threat.” If black holes are produced, they are expected to evaporate almost immediately via Hawking radiation and thus be harmless, although the existence of Hawking radiation is currently unconfirmed. Perhaps the strongest argument for the safety of colliders such as the LHC comes from the simple fact that cosmic rays with energies up to twenty million times the LHC’s 1.4ï¿½?1013 eV capacity have been bombarding the Earth, Moon and other objects in the solar system for billions of years with no such effects.
However, some people remain concerned about the safety of the LHC such as the science watchdog group called the Lifeboat Foundation which has covered these dangers in detail. As with any new and untested experiment, it is not possible to say with utter certainty what will happen. John Nelson at the University of Birmingham stated of RHIC that “it is astonishingly unlikely that there is any riskï¿½??but I could not prove it.” In academia there is some question, albeit among a minority of scientists, of whether the Hawking radiation theory is correct.
What do you guys think ? Do we really know enough about this to be fucking around with it? The risks are high. . this could be a step closer however to Faster than light Travel, Teleportation, even Free energy.
