Leak in the LHC cooling system.
posted by: dberry
According to the Director General of CERN (DG). A leak has been found in two sectors of the LHC. One was found in sector 8-1 and the other was in sector 2-3. I don’t know where these sectors are, but they have already been cooled down. This is a problem because they have to be warmed backup so the technicians can repair it. When the leak was noticed, the area was at 80k (-316 F), far to cold to work on. This takes a substantial amount of time and will cause start up to be pushed back to mid-November.
