At what point does science go from being useful to being dangerous?


Albert Einstein suggested that the US study the application of atomic power for warfare before the Nazis could unharness its potential. Because of the devastation of life in Japan caused by atomic bombs Einstein came to regret that earlier suggestion. Today the CERN center in Switzerland continues working to create longer-lived anti-matter in order to confirm and/or better understand the Big Bang theory. Considering these facts, are we and our planet in plausible, potential danger from experiments carried out in the name of finding scientific "holy grails"?
