LHC Restart Postponed Further, Won't Attempt To Swallow Earth Again Until September

Those anxiously awaiting the restart of the most complex machine ever built on earth will have to wait a little longer, as CERN today announced they were pushing back Large Hadron's restart to September.

It was previously hoped that the LHC's tunnels would be down to near absolute zero in time for a summer reactivation, but September is now the goal to accommodate further safety features and inspections. Experiment data will be in eager physicists' hands by early 2010 by the new schedule. [Reuters]
