Possibility of making mini black holes
The concept of mini black holes has been around for a number of years, thanks to work done by Steven Hawking. Scientists are now pondering the prospects of creating mini black holes in the lab, when the Large Hadron Collider is commissioned in Geneva in a few years. Tests of quantum mechanics, general relativity and perhaps even string theory's (now called M-theory) prediction of multiple, unseen dimensions, may be possible.
