The Large Hadron Collider would show scientists how the Big Bang happened.

The Big Bang machine will show scientists how the big bang started the Universe.

Microscopic black holesEdit

Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider sparked fears that certain particle collisions might produce doomsday phenomena, involving the production of a stable micro black hole or the creation of a hypothetical particle called a strangelet.[1] Two CERN-commissioned safety reviews examined these concerns and concluded that their experiments at the LHC present no danger and that there is no reason for concern.[2][3][4] a conclusion expressly endorsed by the American Physical Society.[5]
