    Every little discovery leads us closer to room temp superconductors.

    The LHC is actually super cooled. The magnets that accellerate the photons are about one degree above absoluter zero.

    That's correct, except that it is protons that are accelerated.

    Yep, photons are pretty much immune to magnetic fields. They interact but not to accelerate or even change direction.
