I can imagine what are you expecting:

The connection failing had been done with Pb-free solder, such as SAC type.


I am not sure. Work on the Super Collider might have started before RoHS
becoming effective.

Besides, the whole application is exempt from it.

Finally, considering the really low temperatures in the collider ring

Tin Plague may be the problem one should have considered possible.


Anyway, as you say, an 8D report on this gigantic solder joint issue-costing

would be utmost interesting.

Possibly, with the power of the Group behind you, you could get a copy?

Wonder if we will ever get a failure analysis on this. Interesting that the
whole thing is kept super cold:
