The 2012 mayans remark has zero relevance, other that feeding the paranoia about an armageddon triggered by the HLC, which is already discused in the article about its safety. -- (talk) 10:50, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

It said IRONICALLY, you dumbbag. But come on, it's in 2012. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:58, 10 September 2008 (UTC)


Will the SLHC be able to handle adjectives? (talk) 14:56, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

Luminosity units have to be wrong.[edit]

The article says 10^35 cm^−2 s^−1. We're missing an actual luminosity unit here. (talk) 21:58, 3 September 2013 (UTC)

That is a luminosity unit. --mfb (talk) 07:00, 16 June 2018 (UTC)

Upgrade has started[edit]

According to BBC News, High-Luminosity LHC upgrade has already started: [1]. What will happen in 2026 is the start of the runs. Rowan Forest (talk) 23:32, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Some civil engineering. Not an upgrade of the actual accelerator. --mfb (talk) 07:00, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
The upgrade started by digging the cavities needed for the new hardware. The point is that the update is not planned for 2026, that is when it should be finished and operational. Cheers, Rowan Forest (talk) 16:03, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
