Last May, I wrote about how the world was going to end on November the 26th.
Scientists are building a yoke called the Large Hadron Collider [not a Large Hardon Collider – that’s a different experiment].
The LHC is designed to replicate conditions at the time of the Big Bang. Costing €3 billion, this machine will collide particles and recreate forces present at the origins of the universe.
However, there are concerns that these forces could cause a black hole which in turn could cause the Earth to suck into itself and disappear.
Scientists were quick to suppress fears. They had done their calculations. They had run computer simulations. Some of the greatest minds in the world of mathematics had worked on this, and they had calculated that the chances of a black hole were infinitesimally small. They pointed out that they were great mathematicians, and they had calculated, and re-calculated and that they never make mistakes
Unfortunately, the LHC exploded during tests.
Because they made a basic mistake in their calculations.
So the End of The World has been postponed until next year.
We apologise for the delay.
