Don't worry - they have a plan

The CERN Large Hadron Collider is set to go in October, potentially leading to the discovery of the so-called "God" particle, simply advancing science and the human body of knowledge, or accidentally creating a black hole and slowly but surely destroying life as we know it as it is consumed by an ever-growing pit of nothingness.

Fear not! They have a plan and a series of fail-safe devices set to prevent the latter from occurring. From the ministry of helping you sleep better at night: Dr. Higgs or how I stopped worrying and learned to love the LHC

"A nightmarish situation, that can still be hoped to be averted in time through communication within the scientific community, is drawn attention to. Only a few weeks remain to find out whether the danger is real or nothing but a mirage. After this time window is closed, it will take years until we know whether or not we are doomed. The story line has all the features of a best-selling novel. The reader is asked to contribute constructively."

Quote from Dr. Otto E. Rossler, a modern day Leonardo Devinche, Professor Theoretical Biochemist, visiting Professor of Theoretical Physics, inventor of the Rossler Attractor, founder of Endophysics, winner of the 2003 Chaos Award of the University of Liege and the 2003 Rene Descartes Award, contributor to hyper chaos, micro relativity and publisher of approximately 300 papers.
