Physicist at CERN are going to create a quantum sized black hole. Because they believe that Hawking Radiation is correct, if it's wrong we are all doomed.

Reasons why the world will get destroyed by the LHS :

1) Uncontrollable explosion and melt down

2) Black Hole

3) Faster than light communication

4) Messing around with Higgs Boson and the other elementary particles

Please.

Sorry, I was talking about the whole news coverage of it being nonsense.

They can't really explain it to the public...
