The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is back up and running again after a brief power outage due to a faulty electrical cable.  The power outage did not affect the LHC’s supercooled magnet system, but it did shut down CERN’s main computer system in addition to the equipment that injects beams of protons into the LHC’s underground ring.  The power outage come just a few days after the LHC set the record for proton acceleration.
