Now Official- LHC Out of Commission Until Next Year


news.bbc.co.uk

The Large Hadron Collider near Geneva will be shut off until spring 2009 while engineers probe a magnet failure.

The incident on 19 September caused a tonne of liquid helium to leak out into the experiment's 27km-long tunnel.

Officials said the time required to fully investigate the problem precluded a re-start before the lab's winter maintenance period.

Well, first they reported that the LHC would be off-line for at least One Week. Then, they stated it would be off-line for Two Months. Now, at the very minimum, it will be out of commission for at least Six Months.

No great surprise, really. It's cutting-edge technology, there are bound to be some hitches along the way.

its a break down plain and simple

by the time they get it fixed it will be too close to or in the winter shutdown period to restart, dont forget it takes weeks to cool it down ready for experimentation

its annoying as hell but nothing to worry about

One little magnet failure puts it out of commission for 6 months? Good luck making those black-holes!

Yep if you look at some of the programs on it, some of the people working on it, expected alot of problems, before they can get going.

Well a day late and a dollar short, the damage has probably already been done.

They probably caused a rip in the space/time continuum, letting unspeakable entities seep into this plane of existence and it'll take six months to construct a band-aid big enough to patch it... good job boyz.

Is the LHC dangerous?

Back when the first Atom bomb was ready for detonation many scientists feared a chain reaction would ignite the atmosphere destroying everything.

The bomb was detonated.

Are we as a race brave or stupid?
