Re: The CERN safety study

And a compost pile can start to combust spontaneously: Haystacks, compost piles and unprocessed cotton may self-ignite because of heat produced by bacterial fermentation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spontaneous_combustion .

Re: The CERN safety study

I don't feel that there is a lot of logic in some of this. If there are extreme energy collisions happening on the edge of the atmosphere all the time then there are only a limited number of ways of looking at them regarding black holes. Either no black holes are produced, in which case we are unlik...

Re: hello from Romania

hi Bob welcome.....I'm new here too and I also know very little physics....I know they are getting up to a million collisions a second at times...so I suppose it will take a little while to analyze them :crazy:
