A longer delay for the Large Hadron Collider

CERN director Robert Aymar said in October that the LHC would come back online at the beginning of April 2009, following CERN's annual maintenance period. Earlier this month, that date was revised to June 2009.

However, the plan now is to restart the experiment in late summer next year, CERN's head of communications, James Gillies, told ZDNet UK on Friday.

Collider 'needs warning system'

An official investigation into the accident at the Large Hadron Collider has recommended that an early warning system be installed.
This system would detect the early stages of a helium leak, following an incident that has shut down the LHC until June 2009.
The collider is built to smash protons together at huge speeds, recreating conditions moments after the Big Bang.

We're going to have to wait for 2009 for the planet to be swallowed by a man-made black hole? Does that mean I need to pay my bills?


Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

I am losing my favourite prediction and helper tool for Formula 1 Grand Prix results for another year dammit. I thought it would be fixed by the time the new 2009 season will start but looks like it won't be that way.  box

What? If the higgs boson is created with a spin of 1, then X will win and if the spin is -1 then Y will win?

I'm really sad because I've been waiting for years for the LHC start day.

You know, I'm all for science and progress but don't you think that if there was the slightest chance of these tests ending existence as we know it, shouldn't...oh, I don't know, the world population have a SAY on the matter?!

Like I said, I'm all for science and progress, but I like living better!  Smile

Not to worry -- the energy density achieved when cosmic radiation slams into the upper atmosphere is far greater than anything the LHC can muster ...
