Physicists at CERN know people are concerned about the safety of the world when LHC is launched on Red Button Day, September 10, that it could create stable micro black holes that could grow, Strangelets, and so on. So to help set fears aside, quotes from physicist extraordinaire Dr Brian Cox are provided below.
So relax... we're going to be ok.
"I have no idea what the discoveries at
the LHC will lead to."
"We know it will discover exciting things. We just don't know what they are yet."
"We might not have thought of what turns up, but we know we've got to see it."
"The LHC is certainly, by far, the biggest jump into the unknown."
"We know it will discover something because we have deliberately built it to journey to uncharted waters."
