the end of the world . . . revisited

The Large Hadron Collider (see August Archives, "The End of the World . . .") fires up today. There are those who are still worried that the LHC will inadvertently create a black hole that will result in the destruction of the world. Although today will begin a series of preliminary tests (firing protons in one direction, then later, in the other, with the actual experiments taking place in several weeks or months), I guess we'll just have to wait and see if the doomsayers are right. Good luck to us all. See you on the other side.
