Technical Difficulties Shut Down The Large Hadron Collider

Remember that Large Hadron Collider, which was supposed to figure out all the unsolved mysteries of existence or something? Less than two days after it was started up last week, the $10 billion atom smasher was damaged when a faulty electrical connection cause a mechanical failure. Oops.

Repairs will take a few months because scientists have to carefully warm the damaged area past the particle collider’s normal operating temperature of absolute zero. The hadron collider is located in a 17-mile long tunnel under the border between France and Switzerland.

This delay must be disappointing to researchers who hoped to use the collider to replicate the big bang and analyze antimatter in order to learn about the “hidden dimensions of space and time.” If they want to figure out the secrets of the universe they really need to start with learning proper wiring techniques.
