Material posted: Publication date: 20-01-2012

In the fall of 2008, Newspapers were full of headlines reporting that in the bowels of the Large hadron Collider (LHC), where physicists were going to split a substance into elementary particles, born of microscopic black holes, can absorb the Earth. What is the significance of the TANK for science? What are scientists looking for? Why physics might soon make one of the greatest spurts in its history? All these issues are discussed in the book "Collider". The author, among other things, proves why it is impossible either practically or theoretically, that the LHC will cause black mini-hole, which everyone is so afraid of.
