CERN Will Blast a Hole in the Earth in September 2015-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (also known as CERN) plans to blast a hole in the earth in September 2015 and “hell could literally break loose.”
CERN doesn’t have any plans to blast a hole in the earth in September 2015.
That rumor started with a post at the website Before It’s NewsThe post appeared under the headline, “Top Scientists Issue HUGE ALERT: Everything In Place to Open Gates of Hell This Year- — 2015.” The post (falsely) warns that CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) could cause “3 distinctive life extinction events,” including the creation of “baby black holes.”
Before It’s News isn’t a credible news source. The website’s stories are submitted by “a community of individuals who report on what’s going on around them.” That leads to a lot of false reports, like the one about a ship that reappeared 90 years after it went missing in the Bermuda Triangle.
The fake “warnings” about CERN’s destructive capabilities were taken from safety information posted on CERN’s website about the LHC that covers cosmic rays, microscopic black holes, strangelets and vacuum bubbles.
These fake warnings sparked additional false warnings like this YouTube video that had more than 580,000 views:
And, in case you’re wondering, microscopic black holes have never resulted from LHC particle collisions, CERN reports:
Another way of revealing extra dimensions would be through the production of “microscopic black holes”. What exactly we would detect would depend on the number of extra dimensions, the mass of the black hole, the size of the dimensions and the energy at which the black hole occurs. If micro black holes do appear in the collisions created by the LHC, they would disintegrate rapidly, in around 10-27 seconds. They would decay into Standard Model or supersymmetric particles, creating events containing an exceptional number of tracks in our detectors, which we would easily spot. Finding more on any of these subjects would open the door to yet unknown possibilities.
So, there’s no truth to the reports that CERN plans to blast a hole into the earth, or take part in any other “life extinction events.”

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
CERN IS ABOUT TO GET DANGEROUS and this year, all hell could literally break loose! In the event it does, what will we do? This stuff is pure evil, and pure dangerous!
In the graphs, developed in detail in the different posts of this web, we show the 3 distinctive Life extinction events that the Large Hadron Collider can cause, once it is put on line at double potency in 2015, over the 10 Tev barrier of dark matter – the theoretical minimal energy of formation of a ‘bag of strangelets’ and ‘micro-black holes’.
– Creation of baby black holes that do not evaporate, either as top quark condensates (Einstein’s famous frozen stars) or string stars with higher dimensionality.
– Creation of strangelets, lumps of strange quarks shown to be very common in the Universe, as all pulsars seems to be frozen, strange stars.
Both type of ‘frozen stars’ will be made at CERN between 2015 and 2020 on collisions over 10 Tev.
– Finally the magnetic field of the LHC, the strongest on planet Earth, which cause disturbances on the Earth’s magnetic field, cause of Earthquakes that have increased till record numbers, similar to those of II World War during the carpet bombing of the pacific seismic ‘ring of fire’, since the machine was put on line. Any of those 3 scenarios should have deterred CERN and its financial backers.
