Large Hadron Collider nearly ready
by noteworthy at 7:30 am EDT, Aug 6, 2008

At The Big Picture:

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27 kilometer (17 mile) long particle accelerator straddling the border of Switzerland and France, is nearly set to begin its first particle beam tests. The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is preparing for its first small tests in early August, leading to a planned full-track test in September - and the first planned particle collisions before the end of the year. The final step before starting is the chilling of the entire collider to -271.25 C (-456.25 F). Here is a collection of photographs from CERN, showing various stages of completion of the LHC and several of its larger experiments (some over seven stories tall), over the past several years.

Yep - it is almost ready and they've already had a big accident due to flaws in it's design. I'm so confident in their calculations. (NOT)

This is one project that I both support and fear. I'm really very excited about it, but I'm not confident we should be doing this with what we know, right now.
