Has the large hadron collider destroyed the world already?

Who?

Please tell me if the world has been destroyed already?

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.

Hopefully, it will last a good deal longer.

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.

This is all pop-sci nonsense. Nothing like this will happen.

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

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

I believe CERN created something called ENQUIRE in around 1989 or 1990.
