BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Hadron Collider forced to halt

Plans to begin smashing particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) may be delayed after a magnet failure forced engineers to halt work.

The failure, known as a quench, caused around 100 of the LHC's super-cooled magnets to heat up by as much as 100C.

The fire brigade were called out after a tonne of liquid helium leaked into the tunnel at Cern, near Geneva.

Cant you just see the firemen reporting this with high pitched squeeky voices from all the helium.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
