No Beam Until Spring

That's the word from CERN today. Between cracking open sector 3-4 to take a look at the magnet failure and the winter shutdown due to higher energy costs, the LHC won't see another beam until early spring 2009. Gordon Watts has the usual details on work likely to take place over the winter as well as a healthy dose of optimism.
