Hadron Collider breaks down thanks to bread dropped by passing bird

(DAILY MAIL) — It’s one of the most expensive and technologically-complex machines in the world, but that didn’t prevent the Large Hadron Collider from coming a cropper thanks to our feathered friends.

The £4.4 billion ‘God Machine’ overheated after a passing bird dropped a piece of bread into a high voltage installation which was powering a cooling unit.

Scientists looking into a failure of the cryogenic cooling plant found a piece of baguette had caused the malfunction.
