The CERN center in Geneva, Switzerland is home to the Large Hadron Collider "atom smasher". Science Mag described last year in rather frightening terms how the LHC was able to create new particles that scientists couldn't detect or trap and release them into the world with results that might not be known for decades.
The Himalayan News reported yesterday under the headline "Researchers Confident To Make Contact With Parallel Universe In Days" that the LHC will be fired up to its maximum energy levels (1 trillion volts) in an attempt to blast a tiny black hole into existence!
Researchers say it's even probable that gravity from our own universe may "transfer" into this parallel universe. This all goes down next week and the experiment will undoubtedly be a game-changer. Normally, when people consider the multiverse, they think about the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics, where every possibility is realized, for instance, a universe where say Germany wins World War II. Of course, it's impossible to test this so it's only philosophy and not science. And that's not what the LHC experiment means by a parallel universe in this case anyway. Instead, they are referring to real universes in extra dimensions.
All I can think of is a black hole sucking gravity off the earth sounds like a great way to wipe out mankind.
