“…some of the copper stabilizers are not up to the quality needed to go to the full energy level.”

That’s what she said…

But don’t put away your lead aprons just yet.  Everyone’s favorite doomsday weapon, the Large Hadron Collider, will be shut down for a 12-month period….a 12-month period some time in the next two years.  Yeah….wrap your head around that one.  The reason for this stay of execution for the space/time continuum is that the LHC is too powerful.  That’s right.  It could potentially shake itself apart when pushed to 88 miles… I mean full power.

Director of accelerators and technology for the project, Steve Myers, had this to say…

I wouldn’t call it a design flaw. It is just that some of the copper stabilizers are not up to the quality needed to go to the full energy level.

Since the shutdown isn’t immediate, the ol’ LHC will continue to run for the time being, but only at 50% power.  So until technology catches up with itself, or the crew hires James Cameron, we’ll all have to wait a little longer until the Headcrabs appear.

Rob is excited to be contributing to The Fridge. With one finger on the pulse of Marvel/DC and another on that of Hollywood’s superhero franchises, no multi-issue arc or casting rumor is too small to report. When Rob opens The Fridge, the light inside shines green!
