It's China's artificial sun machine.
Well the set in the movie was modeled on an old fusion reactor concept. But now what if their attempt to create an artificial sun turns into an artificial black hole?
Even an artificial singularity would have to have several solar masses to destroy Earth. One with only Earths entire mass would be less than a cm across and evapourate in seconds.
Clusters of subatomic particles creating one generates something so tiny it could be studied, but would last nanoseconds at best.
A star needs massive volumes of material larger than the resultant star itself to form, and gravitational forces on a solar system based scale.
Nothing about these machines is going to do that, and people really need to not keep believing it will.
It was just a joke in keeping with the tone of the OP.
Sorry, just had flashbacks to people going on TV here when the CERN collider fired up saying we were all going to die via blackhole.
As for the set design, probably just taking the basic "containtment" idea of the shape for the Red Matter. Not sure why, it took blowing up the ship to spray it around.
No, it would evaporate in 10^50 years. A black hole whose mass is one million kg will evaporate in about a second.
Willing to bet they aren't going to pop up in our experiments and end the world though.
