Apocalypse delayed for at least a few weeks

The Large Hadron Collider had to be shut down after a helium leak and some faulty wiring were discovered. The repair process involves several weeks of warming up the LHC followed by several weeks cooling down the apparatus. So, for the next few months at least, the apocalypse has been delayed.

No word on whether further delays will push the operational date to 12 December 2012.
