The LHC will not destroy us. Here’s why.

I owe this link to Barry Reich who posted it on Facebook. It’s a short article by a physicist that lays out the argument that the Large Hadron Collider will not create an Earth-swallowing black hole. The most convincing part for me: cosmic rays have been creating collisions as strong as the LHC would, and we’re still here.
