Cosmologists theorize that strangelets could possess a powerful gravitational field that might allow them to convert the entire planet into a lifeless hulk.
Is it really worth it?
I'm not sure what exactly we will learn from doing this,
Well, a number of findings could be applied from this study. For example, creating distributed computing systems that would create exponentially greater data storage and even tighter encryption. As a result, less volatile quantum machines could be created that are more suited for wider use.
There's no doubt the LHC is extremely volatile. I'm just as skeptical that such a machine could end life as we know it in one fell swoop but by the same token, I'd be just as skeptical of the idea of microscopic black holes disappearing as easily as they are created.
