'No threat' from CERN's collider


CERN's Large Hadron Collider is switched on next Wednesday. Some have suggested the creation of black holes in the LHC will destroy us all. A report out on Friday by the LHC Safety Assessment Group says we should not worry, it poses no threat to mankind. Professor Sir Chris Llewellyn Smith says there have long been high energy particles flooding in from the cosmos - and if they were dangerous they would have killed us a long time ago.
