CERN Concerns

CERN Concerns

First hour guest, physicist Walter L. Wagner(1) discussed safety concerns over upcoming experiments at CERN with its Large Hadron Collider (LHC). If things go awry, a micro back hole might be created that could eventually grow larger, or a 'strangelet' could be formed that might lead to a fusion reaction, he warned.
The LHC was built in a tunnel on the border between France and Switzerland (check out(2) Peter McCready's 3D interactive view). CERN, in an attempt to allay safety concerns, offers this statement(3).
