Countdown to Destruction Starts Again

The Large Hadron Collider (aka the doomsday machine) will be restarted today. Barring any more technical difficulties or hardware failures, the end of the world should come sometime later today.

The first proton beams of 2010 were circulated in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on Saturday, Cern said on Monday. The machine had been undergoing technical maintenance for 10 weeks. However, soon after the beams were circulated on Saturday, the beams had to be stopped to allow maintenance to cryogenic systems which help regulate the superconducting magnets, according to Cern.
