LHC startup

with one comment

Today is the day. First beam was launched into the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

Seems like a fun time in Geneva. Never before, perhaps, that a pure physics experiment has gotten so much publicity. Perhaps it has to do with all those lawsuits and death threats due to fear of black holes destroying the Earth.

Let the protons smash. Let the lead ions collide. Let the new physics emerge.

Some pics from CMS page.
