bbc 640x426 BBC Typo Goes Viral After They Claim Hardon Collider Is Coming Up

We’ve all made a typo or two at one point – but when you work for the BBC, it’s probably a good idea to check things once, twice and then a third time.

Sadly for one employee, a caption that should have read ‘Hadron Collider Restart’ ended up reading ‘Hardon Collider Restart’ and to make it even worse, the caption above the error read ‘coming up’ – because the innuendo wasn’t bad enough initially or anything!

It was also captured on video and put on YouTube, you know, just to make the BBC’s humiliation complete.
