More important - the most powerful cosmic rays we've detected (and we've only been looking for about 50 years) has something like 50 times more useful energy than anything we're likely to produce in a collider in the next 10 years. Since the Earth is still in one piece after lots of similar events over its 4.5 billion year history, we're in no danger of harming it with particle colliders any time soon.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
