The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is one of the world’s premier centres for basic physics research. Its Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27-kilometer-long underground ring, is at the forefront of probing the fundamental laws of the universe. By accelerating protons to near-light speeds for collisions, it simulates conditions just after the Big Bang. Although these experiments could theoretically produce miniature black holes, experts assure they would evaporate almost instantly, posing no risk. Nonetheless, some religious fanatics and conspiracy theorists speculate that these experiments could inadvertently open a portal to another dimension, potentially allowing evil entities to invade Earth and threaten humanity. Perhaps they’ve simply watched too many episodes of the TV series Stranger Things
