The Large Hadron Collider will restart in March after a two-year layoff in what CERN is calling "Season Two". It will rev up to a by-far new record for particle collision speed and will also feature twice as many collisions per nanosecond. Been a long-time coming, and the restart, as well as the analysis of data from both it and the ongoing analysis of past information, should again add considerable data to the accumulating "picture" of fundamental particles and their interactions.

This year, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will restart at the record collision energy of 13 TeV, following a two-year long shutdown (LS1) for planned maintenance. To mark this, today saw the LS1 activities coordinator symbolically handing over the LHC key to the operations team. The team will now perform tests on the machine in preparation for the restart this spring.



"It's important to stress that after the long shutdown, the LHC is essentially a new machine," said CERN Director-General Rolf Heuer in his New Year address at CERN last week.

The collision energy of 13 TeV is a significant increase compared with the initial three-year LHC run, which began at 7 TeV and rose to 8 TeV. In addition, in the run that starts this year, bunches of protons in the accelerator will collide at briefer intervals – 25 nanoseconds(ns) between them instead of 50 ns – and the beams will be more tightly focused. All these factors are aimed at optimising the delivery of particle collisions for physics research.

We're not all supposed to die again this time are we?

That information cannot be found in the LHC experiments, but only in the Book of Life (i.e. St. Peter's guest-list, Joey No-Thumbs' appointment book, Akashic records). But no, there will be no mini-black holes or angels or demons crawling out of the machine to get you (Spoiler: the magnets will keep them in there).

let's just hope in the interests of science and technology there are no stray birds trespassing inside this time lol

That's one I missed, was there a bird or birds flying around during its last run? Thanks.

I'm sure on one of its runs or the build up a couple of years back a bird had caused damage to some internal components. Flew in to it or dropped some bread in it believe it or not :/ shows how intricate and delicate some of the parts are for something that is so large and powerful. There were rumours it was a time travelling bird but I'd take them with a pinch of salt.

Thanks. Here you go, some doom porn that was 'posted three minutes ago' when I just looked up news about the restart:

www.inquisitr.com...


Reports that CERN scientists will restart the powerful Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in March, 2015 for another three-year long run of high-energy collision experiments have reignited longstanding fears that the experiments could destroy the Earth and even possibly the entire universe.

Fears that high energy collision experiments with the LHC, the world’s largest particle accelerator located in the Jura mountains near the Franco-Swiss border, could trigger an Earth-wide or even universe-wide catastrophe have been increased by news that the newly upgraded LHC will generate particle collisions at nearly double the energy level previously achieved.

how do they presume that is going to happen? Black holes? They occur naturally all over the universe and they have yet to cause a catastrophe.

The higgs Boson walks into a church and the priest says 'hey we don't allow your sort in here'
He replies 'but without me you can't have mass'..oh dear.

Thank you for your insightful opinion about the coming resumption of experimental events at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. Do you think everyone's death from this continuing high-energy collider's knowledge gathering will be caused by black holes, magnets, or inner-space viruses?

clearly it will bring back Ebola zombies from the future

evidently you do not know my posting history on science and space matters. oh well. you see I am kidding. blackholes if they are created by the collider will be no different than the billions or trillions of them being created by the much more powerful cosmic ray collisions in the upper atmosphere for all of earth's history. no death from that. man made magnets have extremely short range because the field strength decays as the inverse square or worse of the distance from the source. inner space viruses are all currently busy in the B5 fictional universe so there are none available to kill anyone on earth prime. but the real danger is from the boorish people who think any remark must be from a science conspiracy theorist and overreact by declaring a science defending jihad on innocent standers by.

Though the movie ending is different then the book I loved how the film ended.
It doesnt hurt that Dead Can Dance are one of my 3 favorite bands so the usage of one of their classic songs adds to the visceral impact.

There is MUCH doom porn related to the cern super re-start.
How would you like your doom porn?
Videos?




Maybe some crop circles thrown in.
This guy is great, maybe a little to much time in moms basement?

Maybe a Mayan prophesy connection?


I could keep going, there are 100's of videos with just about every angle of doom imagined.

Don't try a google on the subject, you may end up finding a way off the planet before next month, not that that will save you.
It COULD destroy the Universe!

So much doom, so little time.

There, that's more like it. Has anyone noticed that the OP has nothing to do with doom porn, which has now taken over this thread (because I answered the first comment poster in kind) and made people so scared of science that they will never look at Bill Nye the same again. I do know your interest in science and the sharing of data via threads, which is why I both knew you were kidding and also expected you to add better info to this thread. Hence my post. Thanks.

Loved the book and movie!

It might be a good day to watch it again, thanks.

Sorry, just having some fun with it.

I do find the whole experiment fascinating, should be interesting to see what it reveals this time.

Thanks for the thread.

I am very happy and excited for all the scientists involved, as this step has been the result of decades of work. I hope they find what they're looking for and usher in new advances in physics!
