Editor’s Comment on Paper CR16

February 24, 2010 (CR16-D1).  The paper CR16 “Superconductivity: Its Role, Its Success and Its Setback in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of CERN” by Lucio Rossi was published yesterday by SuST (Supercond. Sci. Technol.) 23, No. 3, 2010, 034001, and was immediately commented on by online “Nature” vol. 63, 1008-1009 (2010), in a news item entitled “Did design flaws doom the LHC?”.  The author’s straightforward analysis of the major accident, which set back the scientific schedule of LHC by much more than a year is summarized, and other opinions, including one of an external scientist presented.  The actual text of the news item can be found at http://www.nature.com/news/2010/100223/full/4631008a.html
