The likelyhood of black holes in LHC

  1. Jul 2, 2008 #1
    From what I gather, only more exotic, extra-dimensional theories predict that there will be microscopic black holes produced in the Large Hadron Collider. And I get that even if they are produced they are very unlikely to be stable and even then they would probably be safe (just to let you know I'm not one of those the scientists-will-kill-us-all-quick-shut-down-all-the-particle-accelerators guys) . But is there any kind of estimation about how likely it is that some sort of black holes would be produced as opposed to a scenario where there wouldn't be any black holes at all? Thanks.
