Return of the Supercollider

The SpaceMarauder blog is looking forward to some singular explosions down here on Earth, thanks to the news that the Large Hadron Collider is back online:

Originally slated for an early spring restart, the announcement points to a restart in late September with the first proton collisions to occur about 4 weeks later….

Once the LHC restarts it will be kept running throughout the winter and into autumn 2010 with a small break at Christmas “to allow people not to get divorced!” joked Sergio Bertolucci, the director for research and computing at CERN.

(Get it? Singular? As in “singularity”? I crack myself up….)
