Restarting the LHC: A timeline

CERN has announced the restart schedule of its flagship science “project”, the Large Hadron Collider, that will see the giant machine return online in early 2015. I’d written about the upgrades that could be expected shortly before it shut down in 2012. They range from new pixel sensors and safety systems to facilities that will double the collider’s energy and the detectors’ eyes for tracking collisions. Here’s a little timeline I made with Timeline.js, check it out.

(It’s at times like this that I really wish WP.com would let bloggers embed iframes in posts.)
