We’ll be back in a Moment

One step forward… well you know the rest…

“The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) must close at the end of 2011 for up to a year to address design issues, according to an LHC director.”

The atom smasher will reach world record collision energies later this month at 7 trillion electron volts.

“But joints between the machine’s magnets must be strengthened before higher-energy collisions can commence.”

There are those who point the the LHC as an example of how pan European cooperation is always doomed to fail. Quite the contrary this is a great example of who things rarely go smoothly at first but must constantly be tweaked and reexamined, must like the project of Europe itself.
