Ahh yes, an interesting thread.... lots of fish commenting on the state of the pond..... blub, blub... blub.....
Where did I put my tin-foil hat? It was here just a minute ago before I switched on my new black hole garbage disposal.....ooops....
You know there were some in the Manhattan Project that speculated a nuclear explosion might ignite the atmosphere...fortunately they were better theorists than mathematicians.
The black hole researchers (the ones that will appear on Nova) claim the black holes they are trying to create are very small and do not exist for very long.
..... and fission weapons (bad enough) spawned fusion weapons.... potential "planet crackers", a euphemism in actual use. The difficult problem with blowing a planet up though is that, unless escape velocity is achieved, its mass will simply collapse back on its center.
Night, night... sweet dreams!
