    From my undertsanding they are smashing two protons together and will take a picture of the resulting explosion. They are looking for a new particle called the higgs boison(?sp)

    of course no one knows for certain what will happen but there have been lots of studies and lots of research into it and most are pretty sure it's safe

    A quote from another scientist from the thread on my forum:

    Well we'll see but they are a hell of a lot of people right now believing this will kill us all.

    And so it might. But then we're all going to die somewhen, the earth WILL come to end at some point.

    Frankly I'd rather go with everyone else in an instant

    It would be too late to worry about it... If it happens it will happen before we would notice it and we would be dead before we knew what happened but there is no point worrying about it as they wouldn't do it unless they are very very sure that nothing will go wrong.

    Actually, it can take up to 50 months to consume the earth according to a professor. So, we can start worrying.

    Its all bullsh!t.

    The world won't die, they did say they would be making microscopic black holes but they wont do anything.

    Scientists thought the world would end with the Manhattan Project...well it didn't.

    Also i don't think the scientists would do this if they thought the world would die.

    Well i've been going on about this to friends for months and done much research, every argument against it has been rejected and scientists say that this process occurs naturally on earth each day and they will use less energy and radiation than we get from the sun.

    The many people worried are just doomsayers who are letting their fears dominate them.

    The chances of a micro black hole being created is 1 in 50 million
