Black Hole in the Lab?

Filed under: — Different River @ 6:17 pm

Physicist Horatiu Nastase of Brown University, working at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory has created something in the lab that might be a miniature black hole. A teaser for the article forthcoming in New Scientist is here.

I wonder what the OSHA regulations on this are going to look like. ;-)
