3/24/2015 — CERN mega-magnet “short circuits” — operations now postponed

UPDATE March 25 2015:

CERN and the media came out this morning (last night) and are now saying that the “magnetic short circuit” happened on March 21st?

Odd that CERN made the post YESTERDAY on March 24th at 14:30 / 2:30pm CET (central European time).

The plane crash occurred around 12-1pm CET .. about 1-2 hours before this post from CERN:


So, now we see, 1-2 hours AFTER the crash , CERN came out and said the magnetic short circuit happened on the 21st?!

Why would they say they had a short on the 21st when they announced they were GOING AHEAD just two days ago on the 23rd?

Literally, they were supposed to begin powerup on the 23rd into 24th.  They said all was good and the media reports show it being reported as ready to go on the 23rd as well.

Someone is lying.

Original reports issued yesterday on Reuters say nothing about the 21st.

If it shorted out on the 21st, then they wouldn’t say all good on the 22nd + 23rd! As of 2 days ago, it was all go for a Wednesday (today) fire up.   This means that yesterday CERN was primed and ready.. then shorted out.

Here’s the report from 2 days ago.. march 23rd.. saying all was set to go.

“The particle accelerator, which will be restarted this week, has already found the Higgs boson – the God Particle – which is thought to give mass to other particles. ”

“The second run of the LHC will begin this week and the beams are expected to go full circle on Wednesday for the first time since the 27km accelerator was shut down in early 2013 for an upgrade. ”

“The first circulating beams of protons in the LHC are planned for the week beginning 23 March, and by late May to early June the LHC aims to be running at 13 TeV.”

It is even possible that gravity from our own universe may ‘leak’ into this parallel universe, scientists at the LHC say.

“Just as many parallel sheets of paper, which are two dimensional objects [breadth and length] can exist in a third dimension [height], parallel universes can also exist in higher dimensions,” added Dr Faizal,

“We predict that gravity can leak into extra dimensions, and if it does, then miniature black holes can be produced at the LHC.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has undergone important upgrades and repairs over the past two years since the first shutdown.

The particle collider boasts new magnets, superior cryogenics, higher voltage and higher energy beams that will allow the machine to run at nearly double the collision energy of the first run.”

It would appear CERN is now going to be on indefinite hold – due to a short circuit in one of the main magnets which controls the Hadron Collider.

Above: Inner chamber portion of the LHC (large hadron collider) belonging to the CERN program. The inner magnetic chamber experienced a “short circuit” on March 24, 2015 causing a shutdown until further notice.


Ironic this comes on the same day as the plane crash in the area.

The location of the crash (near Barcelonnette France) is about 130 miles Southeast of CERN’s main loop in Geneva Switzerland.

Certainly the crash, and the magnetic overload could be related, cannot rule it out entirely due to natural magnetic conjugate points being hundreds of miles away from any large magnetic burst.

“(Reuters) – Scientists at Europe’s CERN research centre have had to postpone the imminent relaunch of their refitted ‘Big Bang’ machine, the Large Hadron Collider, because of a short-circuit in the wiring of one of the vital magnets.

“Current indications suggest a delay of between a few days and several weeks,” a statement from the world’s leading particle physics research centre said on Tuesday.

Engineers had been expected to start on Wednesday pumping proton beams in opposite directions all the way round the two 27-km (17-mile) underground tubes in the LHC, closed down for the past two years for a refit.

That would have been the prelude to the start of particle collisions in late May at twice the power of those in the LHC’s first run from 2010-2013.

The smashing-together of particles inside the LHC is designed to mimic conditions just after the Big Bang at the dawn of the universe. In a breakthrough in 2012, CERN scientists announced the discovery of a new subatomic particle, a basic building block of the universe, which appeared to be the boson imagined and named half a century earlier by theoretical physicist Peter Higgs.

Hopes for the second run lie in breaking out of what it known as the Standard Model of how the universe works at the level of elementary particles, and into “New Physics.”

That includes searching for the dark matter that makes up about 96 percent of the stuff of the universe but can only be detected by its influence on visible matter around it.

CERN scientists expressed disappointment at the last-minute problem, in just one of the underground machine’s eight sectors, which have been rewired and checked thoroughly during the closedown. But the research centre’s director general, Rolf Heuer, played down its significance.

“All the signs are good for a great run 2,” he said in a statement. “In the grand scheme of things, a few weeks delay in humankind’s quest to understand our universe is little more than the blink of an eye.”

Scientists and engineers at CERN, mindful of a serious leakage in 2008 which caused a delay of two years in the start-up for the first LHC run, have long insisted that there can be no rushing into full operations.

Frederick Bordry, director for accelerators, said it could take time to resolve what he described as an intermittent short-circuit because it was in a cold section of the machine, meaning that part would probably have to be warmed up.

It would then have to be recooled. “So what would have taken hours in a warm machine could end up taking us weeks,” he added.”
