The LHC is Out of Order

Large Hardron Collider

Large Hardron Collider

The CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is now out of order because of (not official) leaks in the helium cooling system.

The CERN says that it will take approximately 2 months to make the necessary repairs to the cooling system and so the LHC will be down for at least 2 months.

Sorry guys… no atom-smashing news for another 2 months it seems!
