Supercollider To Clobber Earth?

The new multibillion-dollar supercollider in Switzerland has many scientists excited about discovering the origins of our universe -- and others claiming it will spell our doom. The collider has the potential to create microscopic black holes, which turn into larger black holes that could literally eat the earth alive.

My take? The thing is probably safe, but when you're manipulating the very structures that created the universe, you better be darn sure you know what you're doing.

Is it worth the risk? Are the fear mongers crackpots or the only ones making sense? Hurry and send your thoughts to [email protected].
