Submission + - CERN's LHC to Shut Down for 2 Years for Repair & Upgrades (

hypnosec writes: CERN has revealed that the world's largest and most powerful atom smasher – the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is going into hibernation and will be shut down for a period of two years for upgrade purposes. To be operated for a couple of more months this year, the LHC will go through a maintenance and upgrade phase starting March that will bring the atom smasher up to speed with its maximum energy levels, which will enable scientists to carry out more discoveries even greater than the current ones like the Higgs Boson.
