The end of the world is coming (NOT)

This story updates the efforts by a single lawyer with a physics degree to stop the Large Hadron Collider project because the LHC may create mini-black holes or other phenomena that might destroy the Earth. The latest safety review has, once again, dismissed this as nonsense. What is really interesting here are the comments, which illustrate that fear of "big science," however unjustified in a particular case, has never gone away.
