Submission + - LHC Will Be Shut Down in 2011 Because of "Mistake" (discovery.com)

astroengine writes: "It's to be expected when pushing the frontiers of physics, but the LHC's epic "will it or won't it" saga continues. Due to an unforeseen construction mistake, the LHC will cease experiments for a year (starting around late-2011) so repairs and upgrades can be carried out. For now, accelerated particles will have a maximum energy of 7TeV (half the power of the LHC's design maximum), which is ample for at least 18 months of experiments before shutdown."
