Switzerland – “A re–launch of Larger Hadron Collider by Scientists has been postponed as a result of what was termed to be a minor short circuit in the electrical equipment”. The CERN research center has confirmed. All details were perfectly in place until the short circuit was found hence there is likelihood of some delay in the start of operation which would take two weeks or a few days. This means CERN will be closed for the period that the magnets will be undergoing repair.
The scientists indicated that there is all the need to remove the small metallic piece near one of the magnetic components before they can allow the machine to run. According to Frederick Bordry who is CERNS’s Director for Accelerators, the mishap was unexpected but it is understand.
