+ - Second snag this week could delay LHC by weeks->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "After a transformer failure earlier this week, the Large Hadron Collider has hit another snag--and this one is much more serious. As Science reports, "At least one of the LHC's more than 1700 superconducting magnets failed, springing a leak and spewing helium gas into the subterranean tunnel that houses the collider... Researchers do not yet know the extent of the damage, but some of the machine's parts probably will have to be replaced, a process that could take weeks."
