Large Hadron Collider has electrical malfunction, is taken offline

The Large Hadron Collider has only been online for a short period of time, but it's already hit a few snags. Due to an electrical fault that struck a cooling system for the mega-magnets that keep the beam on track, they had to shut the system down for maintenance. Which I assume is way more expensive maintenance than when my fridge goes on the fritz.

But never fear, science fans! With a contraption this large and complex, it was totally expected to hit a few minor snags. They'll patch up whichever hole is leaking water and get it back online in no time, readying it to speed up to full bore and unlock the mysteries of the universe on schedule. Rock on, Hadron Collider!
