The world's largest particle accelerator, featured in Angels & Demons making antimatter, is riddled with electrical problems, European officials concede. As a result, it may be years before the $9 billion Large Hadron Collider, located in suburban Geneva, Switzerland, produces groundbreaking science, officials acknowledge. This science is includes identifying the dark matter that astronomers say makes up 25 percent of the cosmos and exploring the existence of dimensions beyond the three...
