Black Hole Machine

I read in a NY Times article about a lawsuit being launched in Hawaii to stop a large-scale physics experiment in Switzerland. The experiment will try to reproduce conditions that existed immediately after the Big Bang. Some people are worried it may also create a small black hole that will eat the Earth.

Here’s a photo of the collider:

It looks like the planet eater from Star Trek’s The Doomsday Machine episode:
