Scientist say it will cost more than $20 million to repair Europe's Large Hadron Collider. The European Organization for Nuclear Research said the repairs could take until at least next summer to complete, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday. The machine, designed to smash protons together at huge speeds, took nearly 20 years to complete at a cost of $6.4 billion, was shut down in September because of a badly soldered electrical connection in one of its super-cooled magnet sections.

When it is fully up and running, the four massive detectors on the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the CERN particle-physics lab near Geneva are expected to produce up to 15 million gigabytes, aka 15 petabytes, of data every year.
