- strange + -let (Wiktionary)
“A shower of quarks in a particle accelerator self-reassembled into "a very compressed object called a strangelet [that] would keep growing until all matter was converted to strange matter"?”
“Other opponents have also sought to stop the collider, fearing either a black hole whose super-gravity would swallow the Earth or a theoretical particle called a strangelet that would turn the planet to goo.”
“A strangelet is a hypothetical particle that has an up quark, a down quark, and a strange quark - or at least equal numbers of them in that ratio.”
“CERN scientists have ruled out fears that the process could create a black hole whose super-gravity would swallow the Earth, or a theoretical particle called a strangelet that would turn the planet into goo.”
“Prior to the launch, the internet was abuzz with rumours that the particle accelerator could create black holes or an as-yet hypothetical particle called a strangelet that would grow and destroy the earth.”
“Before the startup, Internet-driven rumours said the LHC would create black holes or a nasty hypothetical particle called a strangelet that would gobble up the planet.”
“Another wild idea: The LHC might produce something called a strangelet that could convert our planet into a lump of dead "strange matter.”
“In fact, the LHC offers some of the very same concerns in and out of the HEP community that Brookhaven's RHIC provoked awhile back – you remember, the possibility that a 'strangelet' might be created that would cause a universal phase shift, alter the false vacuum state and/or otherwise bring an immediate end to all things.”
“black hole" whose super-gravity would swallow the Earth, or a theoretical particle called a strangelet that would turn the planet to goo.”
“Or it could spit out something called a "strangelet" that would convert our planet to a shrunken dense dead lump of something called "strange matter.”
