Review of the Safety of LHC Collisions[edit | edit source]

The LSAG report proves that the utilization of the LHC would be perfectly and 100% safe[1]

According to Einstein's theory of relativity, a black hole could never be created during a LHC collision; however, even if by some miracle it were to happen, the black hole would be so microscopic it would disappear almost immediately. Stephen Hawkins found that black holes disappeared and because of the size of any black holes creating by the LHC, would not survive long enough to start accreting matter and to cause macroscopic effects. In addition, black holes that are created by stars collapsing have proven to be non-detrimental to the surrounding galaxies and earth itself. Black holes such as these are heavier and larger than anything that the LHC could potentially produce.

The RHIC has been successfully operating since 2000 with no presence or formation of stranglets. The LHC will run hotter than the RHIC and therefore the likelihood of stranglets created by the LHC is nonexistent. The temperatures would not allow for the formation and reproduction of strange matter and experience has already proven the formation of stranglets to be false.

Cosmic Rays naturally produce LHC-like collisions in our universe at a rate of over 10 million per second. On earth, there has been upwards of a million LHC-like collisions. Yet the earth still exists as does our surrounding galaxy.

Methods[edit | edit source]

In 2003, five non-LHC affiliated particle physicists were commissioned by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) to analyze the safety of the LHC. [1]

Results[edit | edit source]

Their findings proved that the LHC would not be dangerous to the earth or its inhabitants in anyway. [1]
