CERN to Set Goals for First LHC Physics

This is the latest press release out of CERN regarding the start-up of the LHC. It includes not only the plan for the start-up, but also on the cause of the shut-down.

At the conclusion of a workshop held in Chamonix this week, recommendations have been made to the CERN1 management for the restart schedule of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). If accepted in a management meeting on Monday, these recommendations will ensure that the LHC starts to produce physics data in late 2009, running through the winter and on to autumn 2010 at an energy of 5 TeV per beam and ensuring sufficient data for the experiments to produce their first new physics results.
