Please be joking.

When I saw the title I was wondering what Ted Cruz was doing in Switzerland. I thought he was in Indiana.

The LHC at Cern uses 13.5 Tesla magnets. The collisions they make are of 2,000 particles per shot. There are no "portals" being open by the thing!

If you look at the "Daily Schedule" pdf they only had proton beams circulating around.

Maybe if they had 100 Tesla magnets with millions of particles at faster than the speed of light...

(BTW, 13.5 T is a little higher than a typical MRI)

Aw man... one of the benefits of reading about science is not having to listen about politics. *sigh*

(You did make me laugh out loud!)

I bet the port'oles are open now though...just to get rid of the smell!

I know. We need a break from the political bs, but I just couldn't help it. It's amazing though that a foot and a half weasel plays havoc with a 17 mile long collider.

Not really. For a while I had a real problem with ants in my light switches.

LOL! "I love the smell of burnt weasel in the morning. Reminds me of... portals!"

The creature could have been a stoat which is similar to a weasel.

Although under normal circumstances a weasel would be weasily recognised and a stoat would be stoatally different, a charred one might be a bit trickier to identify.

A mongoose perhaps?
Unlikely, yes. But when in the realm of quantum mechanics...

Schrodinger's Stoat? Or the Zinc Stoat of Budapest?

After 66kV Schrodinger's Stoat is definitely, most completely, no more. Deceased. Dead.

Thanks mate this thread is what I was looking for I want to see what ATS has to say

I think it was making a fashion statement in its charred stoatistical ensemble.

It never gets boring in here just as I thought burned beaver butt head pubs my favorite

Enjoy

I think the transformers are matched sets, so they all need to be replaced. The actual power line can be done rather quickly (day). Then the new parts have to be tested and verified in isolation. Then integrated back to the system. So, yeah, mid-May sounds like an optimistic time frame.

Not to mention all the safety meetings, root cause analysis, etc.

I thought I can get an answer here

Sounds optimistic I hope you keep us updated the pile of low quality info & news out there I decided it was time to come back

No problems! I like reading about this stuff anyway!

To all:
Found out that "IPQs" are the capacitors used with the superconducting magnets. And there may be issues because 5 sectors had issues after the magnets' "fast abort" when they tried to restart. Hope that their original suspicion of "stuck open circuits" due to energy mismatch is the case. And hope there are no damaged magnets.

Someone sent a weasel from the future back to stop the LHC?

And it was a suicide mission...


Its the only logical conclusion,lol

I take it then you have a culinary interest in one but not the other by the look of that tongue of yours, with an anxiety to know which.
