Addressing the safety of collisions at other particle colliders:

  • Review of Speculative "Disaster Scenarios" at RHIC (pdf). This report, published by Brookhaven National Laboratory in 1999, reviews potentially catastrophic processes that might be initiated by collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, a particle collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory that has been in operation since 2000. The conclusion of the report is that the candidate mechanisms for catastrophe scenarios at RHIC are firmly excluded by existing empirical evidence, compelling theoretical arguments, or both.
