The End is Near (or Not)

Here go the scientists, 'playing God' again, at least according to physicists Walter L. Wagner and Luis Sancho ~ From the Atlantic, a suit filed in District Court in Hawaii demands that the U.S. halt construction of the Large Hadron Collider (L.H.C.), the $8-billion particle accelerator on the Franco-Swiss border, on the grounds that it could cause the destruction of the earth, the solar system, or the universe.

James Gillies, head of communications at CERN, didn't seem to be overly concerned about the suit, stating that the laboratory, as of yet, had no comment on the suit.
