After further delays and a lot of time and money the Large Hadron Collider is due to start up again in October, over a year since the initial electrical fault caused it to shut down only a week after it was first turned on.
The world's largest atom smasher will likely be fired up again in October after scientists have carried out tests and put in place further safety measures to prevent a repeat of the faults that sidelined the $10 billion machine shortly after startup last year, the operator said Saturday."

It will just break down again or something. It is the Quantum suicide and immortality thing going on

October now, is it? It's like the Second Coming, or the visit of the Federation of Light; it seems to keep being put back because of unforeseen technical hitches. Who paid for this thing, and can they ask for their money back?

Yea, they did not learn a single thing about "Angels and Demons" hahaha hope they make some new startling findings. but think about it, if its to; important, big, and controversial, like the GOD particle. Do you really think they'll tell the public.

Yeah, I'm always glad that I am on the other side of the planet from that thing. I want to be a world away when the atom smashing part goes wrong.
