    I just exchanged notes with an experimental physicist who works at Fermilab. He doesnt have any further information besides what is in the press release, which came out a couple days ago.

    Peter Woit posted something about this on Friday, http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=541 , with a link to a blog that had some further comment.

    It seems like a bummer and likely, as you say, to set the schedule back some

    Here is the CERN blogger, named Jester, that Peter Woit gave a link to:

    it gives an idea how the accident looks like to CERN people

    I`ll see your experimentalist and raise you two lab technicians.
