Large Hadron Collider failure will leave science back in the 'wilderness' (Richard Alleyne, 26 Dec 2009, Daily Telegraph)

Former Harvard professor Shahriar Afshar said that failure to find the particle would bring current scientific theory tumbling down like a house of cards with nothing to replace it.

The controversial physicist, whose Afshar experiment has already found a loophole in quantum theory, said that unless the scienitific community starts contemplating a "plan B", failure could lead to "chaos and infighting".
