CERN collider restarts search for cosmic mysteries

Post by Strawberry on Mon Feb 21, 2011 8:38 pm

GENEVA (Reuters) - CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is gearing up to resume full-speed particle collisions next month aimed at resolving key mysteries of the universe, scientists and engineers at the research center said on Monday.

They reported that the giant subterranean machine was in fine shape after a 10-week shutdown and that particle beams circulating in it again since the weekend would be boosted to top speed by the end of the day.

"Everything is going very well indeed. Progress has been extremely rapid since we switched the LHC on again late on Saturday," Mike Lamont, head of operations at the LHC control room just outside Geneva, told Reuters.

"if brute force isn't working, you're not using nearly enough"


just smash those atoms harder, that's the ticket. (whatever happened to 'innovation'?)
