Everyone might have time to polish their theory.

Fermilab Statement on LHC Magnet Test Failure
I just exchanged notes with an experimental physicist who works at Fermilab. He doesnt have any further information besides what is in the press release, which came out a couple days ago.

Peter Woit posted something about this on Friday, http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=541 , with a link to a blog that had some further comment.

It seems like a bummer and likely, as you say, to set the schedule back some

Here is the CERN blogger, named Jester, that Peter Woit gave a link to:

it gives an idea how the accident looks like to CERN people

I`ll see your experimentalist and raise you two lab technicians.
