The LHC will be offline for two months while repairs are made to a one of it’s superconducting magnets.
Those of you who were hoping for the end of the world will have to wait a little longer.
Considering it is the cooling system that prevents an explosion it isn’t exactly encouraging that it was the first to go from the get go.
The cooling system does NOT prevent an explosion. The SOLE purpose of the cooling system is so that less energy is required to power the magnets.
I think the tongue-in-cheek nature of the post has overtopped a few heads.
