As the Mercedes Benz Superdome lose almost half to its power, causing an unexpected delay during the Superbowl, it is something that rarely occurs during these special events. However, power outages occur almost every day all around the world, some of them have really been massive power outages. The largest power outage ever record happened July 2012, when India suffered a large power outage affecting more than 600 million residents. Other large outage during history are:
