YAY! We made it! ;)

LHC can't get me! Wink

I'm glad. I'm also glad I didn't write some it's-the-end-of-the-world-gushy-e-mail to a crush or anything...not that I was thinking about it... Wink

I guess I should have qualified my last post with a scientific statement. "the probability that the collider will destroy the earth via black hole isn't zero".

Zero works for me. Not close to it. if you try close to it enough times, you lose.

I should qualify that.

In reply to: Comforting

Zero where the stakes are the catastrophic end of all life on earth. I can live with close to zero on the lesser things with indirect effects like the butterfly effect.

Science & Ethics

In reply to: YAY! We made it! ;)

This just goes to show that Science is willing to take risks that we all could pay for. Yeah, I heard the "we think it would have happened already if it could happen" comment. But you know what? If we actually knew what happened we would not have needed to build the accelerator to begin with.

The best science ever gets is a theory to approximate reality. Everyone else lives in the real world.
