Large Hadron Collider will restart at half-power
August 7, 2009

The Large Hadron Collider will run at only half its maximum energy when it restarts in November after a serious fault forced it to be shut down for more than a year.

Officials from the CERN particle physics laboratory in Geneva announced last night that it will be 2011 before the world’s most powerful atom-smasher reaches its full capacity.

While the £4 billion “big bang machine” should eventually be capable of running at an energy of 7 teraelectronvolts (TeV), it will operate initially at just 3.5 TeV when it starts smashing protons together in mid-November. The first science results are expected a few weeks later.

It will move up to higher energies only once engineers are confident that it is safe to do so, and it will reach maximum power only after it is shut down for a refit in the winter of 2010-11.

Nat Geo just recently had a interesting show regarding fixes to this bad boy:

Pretty finicky machine though it seems. Should be a real science asset when they get it up and running.

The Large Hadron Collider is certainly my most favourite scientific project on par with the International Space Station.

I hope there will be no more problems with it once it gets restarted and the CERN people can really get it going and get results. I am sure there will be some unexpected good surprises and discoveries.

Yeah, I saw that. The TV series is called "World's toughfest fixes". They have some really good show showing how some of the worlds biggest machines are fixed.

That woul be a very bad hair day, for all of us.........I think the term is "spegitification"

Taking the tail section off of the 767 was pretty cool.

The ep were they replaced the antenna at the top of the 2500' radio/tv transmitter made me dizzy - I hope the host and crew were well paid for that one!

We'd never know what hit us. May even have happened already and we don't even know it - a thousand times smaller and many dimensions away!  Smile
