World's Largest Atom Smasher Reportedly Shut Down by Rodent
. . . go weasel, go!
"A weasel-like rodent shut down the world's most powerful atom smasher after it apparently gnawed through a power cable, facility officials said today.
The Large Hadron Collider, a 17-mile long machine sitting deep underground on the border of France and Switzerland, went offline Thursday night, according to documents posted online by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (better known by its French acronym CERN).
Engineers investigating the shutdown reportedly found the charred remains of a furry animal near the chewed-up power cable."
No man can keep a good weasel down!
