So as i'm sure many of us here already know, CERN's Large Hadron Collider has been shut down for "at least two months" due to a $6.6 billion
Am i the only one here who is highly suspicious of both the timing of the "failure" as well as the length of time the LHC will now be "switched
I was wondering if anyone has any further info on this - what is really going on here?
It is my 2 cents worth that more 'experimental' activities may be being conducted at the facility during this two-month lay-off and that any
'black' or secret tests will occur over the newt two months, making it a very interesting time for the LHC.
I wonder what could be going on there during this period? We should all keep our minds firmly focused on the LHC during these two months and pay
attention to anything unusual...
Afterall, this is THE EASIEST way to put the LHC under the radar for a few months - "Oh, its broken, sorry. Ignore us for two months now
Not wanitng to be fooled? Defintely.
(Just wanted to add that I am aware that this is most probably just a magnet failure and nothing sinister, but in this world i dont think much should
be taken on face value - hence my questioning)
