But Hadron Collider hits the skids with a £14m repair bill

Replicating the Big Bang doesn't come cheap, but at least those who were worried it might just trigger the end of the world will be relieved.  Scientists now say, according to the BBC, that the repair bill is huge and  the Collider will be out of action for much longer than they thought. It occurs to me they may well be thinking on the quiet that playing Creator of the Known Universe is a bit harder than they thought it would be - but it will still be interesting to see what they come up with when it is operational again, possibly sometime next year.
