LHC Update: October 2, 2009

October 2, 2009 | 12:00 pm

Today’s issue of the CERN Bulletin reports more progress in readying the LHC for restart. Six of the Large Hadron Collider’s eight sectors are now at operating temperature (1.9 K), and current is flowing in three sectors’ superconducting magnets. The whole LHC is predicted to be at operating temperatures in two weeks.

The chain of accelerators that leads up to the LHC is ready and performing well, as demonstrated by tests carried out last weekend. Particles were extracted from the SPS, the last accelerator before the LHC, and injected into the transfer lines that link the SPS and LHC. Lead ions have also been accelerated up to the entrance of the LHC for the first time.

Also in this issue of the Bulletin, updates on the status of the four major LHC experiments: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb; visits to the LHC by Steven Hawking and author Bill Bryson; and the results of an impromptu survey on CERN and the LHC in the laboratory’s local community.

So, there is some hope that <i>\\\"The Work Will Flow\\\"</i> in the near future?

From everything that I can gather, the LHC will be starting up sometime in November at 1/2 power.

If/When there will be any meaningful work here to crunch is the $64K?

. . . but I am pretty sure that LHC@Home will eventually have mass quantities of work to pass out to the wide world of BOINC.

With the Cern LHC at 1/2 power approx 3.5 TeV we should be able to exceed the Tevatron and perhapes get some new exciting data next month. That could also explain why Stephan Hawkings has returned to the lab. I hope and pray that Prof Hawkings health stays good as we finally get some real data concerning the Higgs Boson.

Check the \"apologies\" thread in LHC Cafe. Or define some hope in percentage. 0.00001% is indeed \"some hope\".
