Doomsday Fears Spark Lawsuit

MSNBC Cosmic Log Article

The builders of the world's biggest particle collider are being sued in federal court over fears that the experiment might create globe-gobbling black holes or never-before-seen strains of matter that would destroy the planet.

Representatives at Fermilab in Illinois and at Europe's CERN laboratory, two of the defendants in the case, say there's no chance that the Large Hadron Collider would cause such cosmic catastrophes. Nevertheless, they're bracing to defend themselves in the courtroom as well as the court of public opinion.

I want a mini-black hole. It would make a perfect trash disposal.

Wow, you could make a fortune with it by charging for disposing of stuff like nuclear waste, toxic waste, criminal evidence, annoying public figures, etc.
