Большой адронный коллайдер остановился из-за хорька

Large hadron Collider – the world’s largest particle accelerator is disabled after a short circuit caused by the ferret. This is the BBC.

Early on the morning of April 29, when the LHC worked, happened a few electrical overload”. It turned out that the electrical system device snuck ferret. In the accelerator didn’t.

The animal died in the high-voltage transformer from electric shock. The elimination of the consequences of the incident will take several days.

The representative of the European organization for nuclear research (CERN) Arno Marsala said that the incident is not surprising, because the Collider is located in a rural area in Switzerland.

According to him, such “small incidents” have always accompanied the work of the Collider. So, in 2009, the object blacked out because of possible contact with birds.
