LHC Delay Hurts Graduate Students

One of the unfortunately aspect of the delay with the LHC operation is fate of the many graduate students who were about to graduate and counting on getting some data to complete their work. This Physics World report describes some of the problems being faced by these students.

Among those hardest hit by the delays are final–year graduate students who were expecting to publish some of the first LHC data in their theses. “There are a couple of guys here who are really gutted,” says Dave Newbold of Bristol University in the UK.

That is always the risk of being involved in such a large experimental project that is about to start
