CERN:'Big Bang Machine' Bursts Back Into Action

"Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters including the Reg at CERN HQ in the second week of November.

More than a year after an explosion shut it down, the world's biggest and most expensive scientific experiment is set to restart today.

"Geneva, 20 November 2009. Particle beams are once again circulating in the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, CERN1’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC)....This is an important milestone on the road towards first physics at the LHC, expected in 2010.

“It’s great to see beam circulating in the LHC again,” said CERN Director General Rolf Heuer. “We’ve still got some way to go before physics can begin, but with this milestone we’re well on the way.”
“It’s been a herculean effort to get to where we are today,” said Myers."



Isn't it funny it starts at same time with the fresh appointments of the new EU leaders?
