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."
