On PhysOrg I was just struck by a very fascinating headline:

http://www.physorg.com/news161857121.html

In trying to understand how gravity behaves on the quantum scale, physicists have developed a model that has an interesting implication: mini black holes could be everywhere, and all particles might be made of various forms of black holes.

The scientists, Donald Coyne from UC Santa Cruz (now deceased) and D. C. Cheng from the Almaden Research Center near San Jose, are cautious about the idea, but say that it\'s worth investigating with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other high energy physics experiments. Cruz and Cheng have presented their idea in a study posted on arxiv.org, \"A Scenario for Strong Gravity in Particle Physics: An alternative mechanism for black holes to appear at accelerator experiments.\"

The full article can be downloaded at

but this is just heavy to read.
The basic ideas are just simple. I like them more than the string theories even if they are compatible.
This LHC could be a real wonder machine.
