The Large Hadron Collider Just Shut Down
« on: December 05, 2018, 11:24:19 AM »

Shut It Down

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the particle accelerator famous for producing evidence of the elusive Higgs Boson, is taking a well-deserved break — all experimentation temporarily shut down on Monday. But unlike the time the LHC shut down in 2016 after a weasel chewed through some wires, this pause in operations was deliberate.

Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, better known as CERN, will spend the next two years performing routine maintenance and upgrading the LHC’s capabilities. If all goes according to plan, they’ll switch it back on in early 2021, according to a CERN press release.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
