"If certain theories of nature are correct, then black holes would be produced in high-energy collisions of particles in particle accelerators," said Giddings. These theories go by the generic name of "TeV-scale gravity."

"TeV-scale gravity is expected to be tested in the next generation of particle accelerators, with the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland being the first of these," he added.

Is it just me, or does anyone else have the sudden urge to listen to the song "It's the End of the World As We Know IT?"

I hope Hawking's spot on with his BH evaporation theory!

Ever read COSM by Benford? He knew this was coming.

Well, when is he wrong?
It must be tiresome to be right all the time like that guy.

Or maybe it is fun.

Well, things are coming along on this front with the LHC due to open in about 18 months or so. I guess we better make the most of 2006!
