    It's not like it's going to hurt when you die. It'll be like a super quick roller coaster.

    I don't see why it scares you. It's like if you just died right now in an instant.

    Haha, they haven't hacked any control systems. They've hacked a computer that's "one step away" from the coltroller of one of the detectors, which means even if they get all the way in, they just get the collision data. The control is most likely networked but not connected to the internet for just this reason.

    Did you read the comments on the Engadget article? This isn't a sign of the apocalypse. We're going to be fine.
