The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is considering suspending the operation of the Large Hadron Collider if necessary, writes The Wall Street Journal.
Plans are currently being developed to shut down some particle accelerators during periods of peak demand for electricity. CERN is studying how to stop the collider if necessary.
It is noted that the price of the device is $4.4 billion.
CERN representatives are discussing with the electricity supplier – the company EDF from In France, the scenario when the operator gives a day's notice of the need to reduce consumption.
It was previously reported that it took more than two months for specialists to check all the updated and new systems of the Large Hadron Collider and prepare it to bring it to a record high energy of particle collisions .
