The scientists working at the enormous machine on Franco-Swiss border achieved the unique conditions on 7 November. The experiment created temperatures a million times hotter than the centre of the Sun." | more

I remember reading that they couldn't run this during Winter as France requires all the electrical energy they can generate to heat homes. I thought that November time would be on borderline winter?

Maybe that's why they were restricted to only a "mini big-bang.." perhaps the world only gets sucked into a black hole next Summer.

Their letting us have one more Christmas!
