Submission + - Earliest LHC restart late summer 2009, likely 2010 (

gaijinsr writes: The damage done in what CERN calls the "S34 Incident" (and what other people call a major explosion in the cryogenics system) is much more serious than originally admitted: The earliest possible restart date is late summer next year, but with some proposed improvements to avoid repetitions of the incident, it looks more like 2010. They kept this pretty quiet up to now, not the kind of information policy I would expect from CERN.
