Did A Weasel Shut Down The Large Hadron Collider?

Description

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the most advanced, powerful, and FRAGILE scientific instrument ever built. A recent malfunction came down to a small mammal: a weasel. The press office CERN has confirmed engineers have tracked down the cause of some recent electrical problems. After the damaged power line was found, evidence of gnawing by a small mammal was clear. The instrument was then unexpectedly shutdown as all hands on deck worked to hunt down the cause. Repairs from the small mammal attack are expected to take a few days. Powering up the LHC takes time, however, so the earliest it could be back online is the middle of May. http://www.geek.com/science/large-hadron-collider-shuts-down-weasel-to-blame-1653721/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
