2. none at all

answer: the human race exists to make sure that the earth doesn't become a place of exquisite beauty to keep the aliens from wanting it too bad. smiling smiley

Perhaps the most surprising black holes, however, are the ones in New Mexico.

In Albuquerque, at Sandia National Laboratories, in and beneath a nondescript, flat-roofed compound, scientists have created an amazing piece of technology they call the Z Machine. Inside the Z Machine, power is discreetly siphoned from the city and drawn into concentric circles of enormous generators. Electricity from these numerous generators is then shot through switches, hurled into a vacuum chamber, torn across a vein-like network of fine steel filaments and blasted from every side into a miniscule space barely as big as a spool of thread. There, the machine's more than 20 million amps of electricity slam to a sudden, violent, fiery halt. And there, for an instant, that tiny space can get hotter than the inside of the sun. In the moment that follows, that captive little star collapses in on itself to become a miniature black hole - a man-made black hole, roiling, pitch-dark and deep, in the Duke City's suburbs.

With increasing power since the late 1990s, the Z Machine has given scientists the chance to study the effects of intense radiation without having to detonate nuclear bombs. It has melted diamonds into puddles. It has allowed physicists to study the effects of black holes and types of stars on iron. It has taken scientists thrillingly close to harnessing the power of fusion - a clean, limitless, almost miraculous power. It has provided the potential to change our lives forever, or to end them.

The black holes created by the Z Machine generally evaporate immediately, but if one ever happens to be stable, it might destroy the planet.
