Experts warn that the European Large Hadron Collider may stop working

The Wall Street Journal, citing experts from the European Organization for Nuclear Research, reported that the organization is studying the possibility of stopping the operation of the Large Hadron Accelerator due to the global energy crisis.

And Sergei Claudette said: The organization has put in place a plan to phase out some of the particle accelerators to avoid a sudden shutdown of the Large Collider, which could damage more than $4.4 billion worth of equipment.

He added that these measures will reduce overall energy consumption by 25%.

The Hadron Collider is located on the French-Swiss border and has been operating since 2008. It is considered the largest in Europe, with a large ring 26,659 meters long.

According to European media reports, the wholesale price of electricity in France and Germany in 2023 is expected to reach a record level that could exceed 1,000 euros per MWh, up 1,000% from the previous year.
