After being stalled by a catastrophic leak, a speck of bread and alleged time travelers, CERN has brought the Large Hadron Collider successfully back online with the full orbit of a proton beam. The 17-mile ring of the facility should continue to see particle beams pulsing through it in both directions over the weekend as it prepares for collisions, though the real Big Bang-style tests probably won't happen until January, as that's when the LHC will be at full strength.

Well, if you have your Doomsday Clock ticking down to the end of November, you'll have to set it back a few weeks for when the LHC is ready to collide some hadrons.




I don't have an idea why english says "set the clock BACK" when something's meant for future.
