The restart of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be delayed again.   The restart has been pushed back from October to November.    The LHC has been having problems with its magnets.  The magnets were trained to generate seven trillion electron volts, but have only been producing approximately four trillion volts.  The delay is necessary to determine at what energy level the LHC can run.  For more information, see ZDNet.
