WSJ: The Large Hadron Collider may be stopped due to the energy crisis in Europe

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has admitted that the work of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) may be stopped due to the energy crisis in Europe. This became known from the statement of the head of the commission of the organization for energy management Serge Claudet to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ).

He said that CERN is developing plans to shut down some of its particle accelerators during periods of peak demand, and is also considering stopping the collider, if necessary.

“Our concern is the stability of the grid, because we are doing everything possible to prevent power outages in our region,” Claudet said.

According to him, the organization strives to maintain the operation of the Large Hadron Collider and wants to avoid a sudden shutdown that could break the $4.4 billion machine.

Earlier it was reported that the LHC was prepared for a new Run3 operation session, in which the energy of collisions of particle beams will reach a record level of 13.6 trillion electron volts (TeV). In this mode, it will start working around the clock starting from July 5, 2022 for almost four years.
