The Hole Man
Larry Niven's award winning short story The Hole Man is a cautionary tale which deals with a black hole that is eventually released from a laboratory setting and goes on to swallow the planet Mars. Now a Dr. Horatiu Nastase at the Brookhaven National Lab thinks he has created black holes here on Earth. Don't Panic! One of the lab directors has been assuring people for years that nothing bad could possibly happen. Right?
