This story reads like beginning of a science fiction novel: Asking a Judge to Save the World, and Maybe a Whole Lot More – New York Times.
I offer this to those of you who heard me speak about my experience getting stranded outside of the scientific facility where the Web was invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee. Apparently, the world may end there as well. The possibilities include destruction by black hole or big dragons, take your pick.
Underestimate the work of CERN at your own peril.
(This is not an April Fools story by the way, if highly unlikely.)
