Just when you thought the world was safe from universe-destroying black holes, comes a nifty short film from L Studio called Rift that explores just such a scenario. It's described as "a surreal interpretation of Pandora's Box about a scientist whose failed experiment results in the formation of a black hole that alters time and space, creating a chaotic Twilight-Zonesque nightmare."

Our scientist/protagonist is actually correct when he says we have nothing to fear from these sorts of proton-proton collisions -- even if the fictional film events contradict that assertion. But Rift offers a creative visualization of what the end of the world might look like -- you know, on the off-chance the scientists might be wrong.
