World’s Largest Particle Accelerator Almost Ready?

This was published on April 1st, so I have no idea if this writer is playing a trick, or if she simply is a bit behind or out-dated with her information. She is still reporting that the LHC is almost ready for its test run this year. Obviously, she hasn't heard about the recent major setback with the superconducting magnets. In fact, more info can be found here at Fermilab's website.

This is a big deal here, folks. It is a major setback and will require a lot of effort to not only repair the problem, but also to figure out the cause.
