CERN today announced that the LHC will run through to the end of 2012 with a short technical stop at the end of 2011. The beam energy for 2011 will be 3.5 TeV. This decision, taken by CERN management following the annual planning workshop held in Chamonix last week and a report delivered today by the laboratory’s machine advisory committee, gives the LHC’s experiments a good chance of finding new physics in the next two years, before the LHC goes into a long shutdown to prepare for higher energy running starting 2014.

For a bit of time we were using the same Linux as CERN: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1073&p=15834

People are always worried about something, especially if you mention 2012, and researchers always promise to find something new, to get more funding. :)

I don't think there is any real danger from it.

Then this civilization would perish, and most people would incarnate somewhere else, to make new religions and new wars. :-D

Only tragedy would be to destroy this nice planet, it is not easy to find planets so beautiful.

Phaeton was destroyed in distant past. You can see the asteroid belt (minerals and ice) between Mars and Jupiter, also some of the comets originate from that time. Mars was also populated back then.

There will be many more disasters like in Japan. It won't create a black hole, but many people will die in the near future. It is pretty much unavoidable. Don't worry about it.
