Many people are worried about the consequences of this collision experiment.Cause with LHC we are steeping into an unknown area.One of the rumor that has been floating is that the collision could result in small black holes which might eventually grow bigger and destroy the earth.The Scientist community is saying that these kind of collisions happens every day in earth's upper atmosphere.There has been lot of discussion going on on the collider.check it out below
