Apparently CERN researchers may beat the Big Mambo AstroChicken to it:
A RISK WORTH TAKING?
Meanwhile, an anxiety which has been gnawing away at the world of
particle physics for months has raised its head again, and this time
it's uglier than ever. At CERN researchers are confident that it's "not
going to happen". Adrian Kent of Cambridge University, however, believes
they've hugely underestimated the risk. So, what are the odds that the
Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider on Long Island will produce a killer
strangelet that eats the nuclei of ordinary matter and consumes the
