wondering if the large hadron collider will destroy the universe before I get back from my weekend away

On Wednesday, physicists at the The European Organization for Nuclear Research turned on their particle accelerator, touching off a process that will reveal new information about the nature of the big bang that happened at the very beginning of the universe.

Critics predict that this will produce a black hole that will swallow first the earth, then the rest of the universe, like everything has been turned right side out since the beginning of time, and now this experiment will cause everything to turn inside itself and consume itself into nothing. Some people are waiting in dread of this moment.

Fortunately for us, we have the internet. Defective Yeti's Matthew Baldwin linked this site, which provides constant updates for those of us concerned, and wanting to know: has the large hadron collider destroyed the universe yet?

question: do you think it's safe to make plans for Monday?

mompoet - still right side out, as far as I can tell
