Astronomer Warns: Earth Could Be Crushed By Particle Accelerator

    Martin Rees, a well-respected British cosmologist, has a warning about particle accelerators. There is a small, but very real possibility of disaster.  Rees claims Earth could be crushed to the size of a soccer field by particle accelerators.

    The Large Hadron Collider, which is a particle accelerator, shoots particles at incredibly high speeds, smashes them together, and scientists observe the fallout. According to Science Alert, these high-speed collisions have helped us discover a lot of new particles, but according to Rees, these discoveries come with several risks to humanity. In a new book, called On The Future: Prospects for Humanity, he gives some pretty dire possible outcomes of this type of advancement in science.

    “Maybe a black hole could form, and then suck in everything around it,” he writes, as Sarah Knapton reported over at the Telegraph. “The second scary possibility is that the quarks would reassemble themselves into compressed objects called strangelets. That in itself would be harmless. However, under some hypotheses, a strangelet could, by contagion, convert anything else it encounters into a new form of matter, transforming the entire earth in a hyperdense sphere about one hundred meters across.” That’s about the length of one soccer field or 330 feet.

    But there’s an even more sinister way that Earth could be destroyed by the particle accelerators built on it. According to Rees, this would be a “catastrophe that engulfs space itself.”

    “Empty space – what physicists call the vacuum – is more than just nothingness. It is the arena for everything that happens. It has, latent in it, all the forces and particles that govern the physical world. The present vacuum could be fragile and unstable,” Ress said.  “Some have speculated that the concentrated energy created when particles crash together could trigger a ‘phase transition’ that would rip the fabric of space. This would be a cosmic calamity, not just a terrestrial one.”

    But CERN alleges that there is no cause for concern. “The LHC Safety Assessment Group (LSAG) reaffirms and extends the conclusions of the 2003 report that LHC collisions present no danger and that there are no reasons for concern,” CERN writes on their website. “Whatever the LHC will do, nature has already done many times over during the lifetime of the Earth and other astronomical bodies.”

    The late Stephen Hawking even said the hadron collider is not a bad thing. “The world will not come to an end when the LHC turns on. The LHC is absolutely safe. … Collisions releasing greater energy occur millions of times a day in the earth’s atmosphere and nothing terrible happens,” said Hawking.

    “Nevertheless, physicists should be circumspect about carrying out experiments that generate conditions with no precedent, even in the cosmos,” Rees writes.

      1. And besides, the scientists have a bucket of water nearby, just in case.

      2. The LHC Safety Assessment Group’s official mascot, Kali —×300.jpg

        LSAG says, “Whatever the LHC will do, nature has already done many times over during the lifetime of the Earth and other astronomical bodies.”

        They believe that the Big Bang and Big Crunch are (whatever those do) are cyclical, repeating occurrences, symbolized by the Hindu goddess of thugs.

      3. Why do I not find myself concerned about this possibility?

        FWIW, the Indonesian Tsunami death toll is now reported as being up to 1200 or more.

        Which scenario is the more serious one to be concerned with?

        • What is not being considered in this theory is a law of dynamics. The strangelet cannot expand and ‘consume’ matter infinitely around it because of the much greater pressure of the greater mass of that which it would purportedly consume, operating against the matter transformation process.

          Even space itself is “stuff”, black matter. Space is unformed and non-complex stringlets. It’s the displacement of space stringlets that cause graviton waves, bands and troughs.

          As any strangelet consummation does happen it’s energy would be snuffed out and expend itself. It would be visible to onlookers as an explosion. It’s the same principles at work in a nuclear explosion, it’s why a hydrogen bomb does not expand beyond a base it’s ‘aimed’ at by it’s components, and blow up the planet.

          So, I can assure you all that the particle accelerator will not snuff out life as we know it, opening portals may be another thing though.

      4. Not going to happen! My God tells me in the scriptures the earth will stand to time indefinite.

      5. Hahaha! Foolish puny Earthlings! You were warned about tampering with the forces of the universe but you didn’t listen and now it’s too late. Prepare for your doom!

        • I like that sizzling sound it makes when we sqwerd their gornots.

          • Mmmm…

            Sqwerd gornots ….

      6. SHTFplan is a shadow of what it once was. A handful of comments instead of hundreds.

        Somebody grasped defeat from the jaws of success.

        • Republicans, I would think.

          They’re good at that.

      7. Well, a Stargate it’s not (what they’re trying to do/open). Maybe something else?

      8. When the effects of electromagnetism, which is 10 to the 39th power stronger than gravity, are taken into account the need for black holes, dark energy, and dark matter to explain the Universe we see go away. All three of those phenomena are chalkboard exercises that were invented from whole cloth when Gravitational Universe Theory failed to explain what we observed. Martin Rees is chasing unicorns. Study Electric Universe Theory at The Thunderbolts Project and you’ll be delighted with the logic and clarity it brings to the observed Earth, Solar System, and Universe.

      9. If the Earth IS crushed to the size of a soccer field, the British soccer hooligans will manage to destroy that remainder that is left!
