LHC fixed: stress tests underway

CERN has completed repairs of the Large Hadron Collider. In June, they have been testing the data network. 4 GB of data - a whole big USB flash card - were transmitted to 140 locations in 33 countries every second. That's three times more than the LHC will generate while running. See Google News.

The collider will restart in October 2009.
