This timeline explores the last day of Earth upon the creation of the Hadron Event.
The Hadron Event is the term coined regarding the malfunction of several particle accelerators, namely the Large Hadron Collider, resulting in the creation of a black hole in on the Swiss-French border.
The POD is on September 30th, 2008, on which an accident resulting in the shutdown of the project for over a year, never occurred. In our timeline, this accident delayed the Large Hadron Collider for several months, forcing it to make repairs and numerous safety inspections.
In this timeline, however, this accident was overlooked, allowing a demonstration to occur. The Large Hadron Collider, which had been leaking six tons of liquid helium, was allowed to continue operations until March of 2009. During this time, several other particle accelerators had been started in London, Cairo, Rome, and Madrid. This resulted in the accumulation of micro-black holes over the continent of Europe.
The Large Hadron Collider was fixed by March of 2010. The operators with the CERN project continued to push the limits of the particle accelerators, generating unprecedented levels of energy and data regarding proton acceleration. While the operators pushed these limits, the accumulation of micro-black holes over Europe continued.
While micro-black holes are generally non-harmful, the accumulations of billions of micro-black holes resulted in numerous anomalies, namely over Europe. The first recorded anomaly linked to CERN was in June of 2011; radio and satellite transmissions were jammed for over a week, resulting in a fatal drop in the economies of several European nations.
As more and more anomalies happened, the final anomaly was the hearing of a 'sucking' sound above the Large Hadron Collider in October 2011. The particle accelerators were quickly shut down for thorough inspection, though the anomalies continues to occur and, in fact, increase in number. By the end of October, 2011, an odd 'pulling' sensation could be experienced near the CERN particle accelerators. In November 9th, 2011, an earthquake with an 8.0 magnitude was recorded on the French-Swiss border.
This earthquake was followed by several more earthquakes caused by the bucking of the planet's crust. On November 10th, 2011, a dark spot above the Large Hadron collider was discovered. Light around the area was distorted, and several people were reported missing. This would be the last day Earth would have to live. It is estimated that the black hole will cause catastrophic damage to the planet by noon, November 11th, 2011.
