Scientists had previously predicted the world’s largest high energy particle accelerator would generate black holes that would disintegrate in a matter of milliseconds. However, new research shows that black holes generated by the Collider could live for longer than a second.
In theory, it is possible that the black holes would pull in particles faster than they disappear. That would be the worst case scenario, turning it into a doomsday device.
According to scientists involved with the project, the doomsday scenario is very highly unlikely. Some even deny that such a scenario could exist.
Either way, we will find out exactly what happens this summer when the Super Collider goes online.
