Nature Insights : The Large Hadron Collider at CERN

| 1 Comment

The Large Hadron Collider - Free access to articles Vol. 448, No. 7151 (19 July 2007)

In 2008, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will come into operation at CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland. The highest-energy accelerator ever built, it heralds a new era in particle-physics research, in which we hope to complete the standard model and even go beyond, into a new realm of physics.

How is that president (Aymar) able to say in good faith that there will not be further delays past the May 2008 start date. Check this link with a schedule. By October 5 sectars had to be cooled down. Only one actually was. And the same lame excuse. Aaaaaaaa its a complex task so these things happen. As if they did not know it was complex when they came up with the schedule. This is one FUBAR project. I wish someone would cancel it already. They'll be lucky if they operate by 2015. And they deserve to be beat at the game by Fermilab.
