    Exclamation You remember the Hadron Collider

    Still worried that the Large Hadron Collider will create a black hole that will destroy the Earth when it's finally switched on this summer?
    Um, well, you may have a point.
    Three physicists have reexamined the math surrounding the creation of microscopic black holes in the Switzerland-based LHC, the world's largest particle collider, and determined that they won't simply evaporate in a millisecond as had previously been predicted.
    Rather, Roberto Casadio of the University of Bologna in Italy and Sergio Fabi and Benjamin Harms of the University of Alabama say mini black holes could exist for much longer perhaps even more than a second, a relative eternity in particle colliders, where most objects decay much faster.
    Under such long-lived conditions, it becomes a race between how fast a black hole can decay and how fast it can gobble up matter to grow bigger and prevent itself from decaying.
