LHC – Ups and downs

After the succesfull start on September 10th and some minor issues during the last week the LHC now unfortunately faces it’s first major problem. A “faulty electrical connection between two magnets” in sector 34 seems to be the reason for a possible two months shut down just after the launch. And this now, just at the time I am going down there …
Investigations are still ongoing and the winter shut down is already in question …

Some more details can be found in the official press release.
