The relaunch Of the LHC was to discover the black hole particle.
The scientists said on Tuesday , “Current indications suggest a delay of between a few days and several weeks.”
Engineers have expected to start the experiment on Wednesday, where two protons beams are pumped in opposite direction in the two underground tubes for the head on collision of particles.
The smashing of the particles in the LHC is designed to mimic the great Big Bang explosion.
In 2012 they have discovered the new subatomic particle called the Higgs Boson which is the basic building block of the universe.
This particle gives mass to all the matter around it but it does not have mass.
The experiment is searching for the dark matter. It was for the first time found that most of the universe is composed of dark matter which is about 96 percent by the Hubble telescope.
It cannot be seen and can only be detected by its influence on the visible matter around it.
Research centre’s director general, Rolf Heuer, said, “All the signs are good for a great run 2,” he said in a statement. “In the grand scheme of things, a few weeks delay in humankind’s quest to understand our universe is little more than the blink of an eye.”
Frederick Bordry, director for accelerators, said it could take time to repair the problem as it was in a cold condition of the machine, and that part would probably have to be warmed up and it would then have to be recooled.
He further added “So what would have taken hours in a warm machine could end up taking us weeks.
