Of course they haven't done any actual collisions yet.

re: Good News! My favorite quote on this:

"The future health of our planet and the safety of its people are of paramount concern to us all," Giddings said. "There were already very strong physics arguments that there is no risk from hypothetical micro black holes, and we've provided additional arguments ruling out risk even under very bizarre hypotheses."

Cos we're all worried about the dangers of hypothetical micro black holes!

re: Good News!
I am actually more concerned about the fact the magnetic poles are several hundred years late in switching. This MIGHT point to a decline in our magnetic field. If that happened, we would wish for only having to deal with global warming.

As for me, I plan to put on a tin foil mini black hole reflector and hope we find the Higgs Boson. Okay, actually I hope we don't so that we can have to rethink our physics again. I have all kinds of questions that people seem to not find odd.

For example:

We know a LOT about the universe but scientist project that 96% (that is a lot right) of the universe is made of stuff (Dark Matter and Dark Energy) that we can not detect.

Did you know that the expansion of the universe is increasing in rate? That make any sense?

How about this galaxies colliding thing. Now are we not in a universe where all space is expanding from every point? Interesting that we are having matter come BACK together after being blasted apart - yet we can not detect enough mass to cause the universe to collapse again (and see my note above about rate of universal expansion).

As smart as we are about physics and cosmology, I await the next Newton or Einstein to fix us up. Until then I will ponder the Schrodinger's cat.
