يا فرحة ما تمت

In my last post about The world's largest atom smasher at CERN, I obviously failed to hide my excessive excitement and enormous joy about the commencement of the 27-kilometer circular tunnel housing the Large Hadron Collider LHC under the Swiss-French border.
I Guess Newton’s third law rules supreme; "For every action there is a reaction, equal in magnitude but opposite in direction". Well currently, the same immense feelings still overwhelm me, however, and in accordance with Newton third law (opposite in direction), it is a feeling of disappointment. It has recently come to my knowledge that the smasher has gone out of commission due to a faulty electrical connection, and as such it will need at least 2 more months to be fixed.

The $10 billion LHC particle collider, in the design and construction stages for more than two decades, is the world's largest atom smasher. It fires beams of protons from the nuclei of atoms around the tunnels at nearly the speed of light.It then causes the protons to collide, revealing how the tiniest particles were first created after the "big bang," which many theorize was the massive explosion that formed the stars, planets and everything.

There is a reason why it going to take long to fix the fault. To increase the efficiency, the smasher operates at near absolute zero (for those who are scientifically inclined, it is Zero Kelvin or -273). Warming up the environment and cooling it down again simply takes time!

LOL @ the title of this entry!
Contrary to your reaction, I rejoiced, for now we can happily live for at least two extra months hehehe
