Default Re: Collider now functional

honestly i doubt anything is going to happen in fact im willing to bet 100000 it dosent destroy the earth
at the moment they havent actually done any collisions yet as this isnt just a piece of equipment you can turn on and use it requires immense amounts of testing and calibration and apparently during winter it is going to be shut down so it can be tuned for full energy collisions
