They started colliding beams in the Large Hadron Collider for the first time today, the worlds largest particle accelerator designed to test out various theories of particle physics – in other words, just what exactly is going on at the sub atomic level ….!
According to some sources, there are fears that this could create mini (or even maxi) blackholes into which we could all be sucked, quickly, but not necessarily painlessly – although we don’t know that do we, never having experienced it before?
