Report says Hadron Collider will restart in 2009

The European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) recently released a report including photos of damage to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The September malfunction was caused by a faulty electrical connection between two of the accelerator's magnets. This resulted in mechanical damage and release of helium from the magnet cold mass into the tunnel.
