I joked last year about the possibility of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider creating baby black holes that would grow and Eat Us All!!! And of course other people thought about that too. Now Rick Kleffel tells me that some guys from Hawai’i are suing CERN because they are convinced we are all doomed unless the LHC is stopped. It has been in a science fiction book, but must be real, right? Anyway, Rick’s podcast is here. It has Rudy Rucker describing the beginning of the end of the world in it too.
The annoying thing is that I have a vague memory an SF book in which Earth was destroyed by an escaped black hole. I’m sure i reviewed it. But I can’t remember which book it was. Can anyone help?
