‘Phut’ is a lovely onomatopoeic little word, and, if you believe the conCERNs of some people, this is what could happen if the whizzy new physicists’ plaything, the Large Hadron Collider, ends up producing a black hole, which then proceeds to suck us all in.
Apparently, an appropriately named, and potentially mischievous, hypothetical little object called a ‘strangelet‘, could provoke a reaction which may consign us all to oblivion.
Of course the scientists are eager to start playing with this great big, and hugely expensive, new toy. To counter claims that the end of the world may be nigh, those with more brain cells that all the world’s WAGS put together, are arguing that what they will be doing is nothing more that what has been going on throughout the galaxy since time immemorial.
