The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a massive internationally-funded particle accelerator located in Switzerland, keeps hitting setbacks. Originally scheduled to power up around 2005, the project's latest snag—supports for the collider's many powerful magnets are failing—has pushed the start date to May of 2008 [this could also affect the Higgs Boson PPX proposition]. Scientists also reported that cooling the massive magnets to the required 1.9 degrees Kelvin (that's cold) seems to be taking "a little longer than planned." Personally, I'm glad they're spending a bit of extratime to get everything perfect, since one theoretical failure situation could lead to the creation of a black hole that devours the earth.
VR photographer Peter McCready's series of 360-degree, high-resolution techno-porn shots depicting various parts of the amazing 27-kilometer underground complex (complete with soothingly industrial ambient background soundscapes—you can almost hear the magnets cooling) should keep your mind off doomsday long enough to remember that the LHC is probably a pretty good idea after all. Apocalypse watchers: you've got another year to rest easy. —Dan Smith

Oh my god if its true we will all dye.
If they are aware that there will be a black hole than why
did they build this machine.
It could put an end to the human race.
If a black hole is created it will depend on 'when' it is created how much damage it will do. We are on a spinning planet in an eliptical orbit, in a solar system moving in a spiral galaxy, moving through the universe. Some where between 140 and 330 mi/sec (800,000 and 1,700,000 ft/sec) ft.sec.)
If a property of a black hole is to be stationary in the universe when it is created and If Hawkings evaporation time is correct at 1*10 -23 seconds, the hole will move .000000000000002 inches max before it expires; else it will cut a hole along the resultant stationary vector and exit, hopefully above the tangental plane and not on a collision course with the sun.
My 2 cents,
