Haven't countless sci-fi and horror movies taught us anything?

I read nothing but the thread title and would like to say one thing.... "I hope not...".

I hope it creates a tiny black hole. That would be amazing.

Fascinating. I had hoped we would have ours done first, but if something goes wrong, I am glad it's over there.

For all the talk of World War III and global warming, we are going to accidentally turn our planet into a black hole. We aren't that bright.

Like what Carl Sagan said about this. We must move beyond our solar system to avoid extinction. Which carries with it an ironic result of advanced technological pursuit to complete this task, every advance brings us closer and more capable to self-inflicted extinction. Definately damned if we don't, possibly damned as we try to do.

I hate to sound selfish, but I don't care about the sun turning into a red giant billions of years in the future, just don't kill me now.

How dare you worry about self-preservation!;)

If I remember correctly, it was more than the sun destroying all life, it was about extinction events, a more "immediate" threat. Like the one theorized to have nearly done in humans around 70,000 years ago...some super volcano if I remember right.
