CERN preparing to SHUT DOWN most of its particle accelerators and 'idle' the Large Hadron Collider in response to Europe's energy crisi
CERN is considering shutting down the majority of its particle accelerators

The Swiss scientific facility wants to keep Large Hadron Collider in 'idle' mode

Shutting it down would set experiments back weeks as it takes so long to cool

The proposal has been made to help conserve power during the energy crisis

Europe's energy crisis is being felt by everyone - including the scientists working deep underground in Switzerland at the Large Hadron Collider.

The European Organization for Nuclear Research, better known as CERN, is even considering taking its particle accelerators offline.

This is due to the accelerators' high energy demands, and the organisation's desire to keep the region's electricity grid stable.


At peak operation, CERN uses nearly 200 megawatts of power - a third as much energy as the city of Geneva - making it one of France's largest energy consumers.

Mr Claudet told the Wall Street Journal: 'Our concern is really grid stability, because we do all we can to prevent a blackout in our region.'

'If we are given a budget to do science and, voluntarily, we stop science to save energy, we have to make sure we have the support of the respective countries.'

The proposal is for CERN to shut down most of the eight particle accelerators during periods of peak demand, to lower its energy consumption by 25 per cent.

wow how green of them instead of using 200 mega watts they are going to 150 megawatts . SO GREEN !!!!

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-
