If you haven’t heard it already

A month ago, I remember seeing a lot of red on the LHC cool down status, but now it is all BLEU. Almost all sectors except for 7-8 & 8-1 are now close to the 1.9 K target and the two sectors are around 20 K. Very impressive progress, almost no big hiccups. So the beam is coming…

The first-first-first beam in the LHC is anticipated in the first week of August in sector 2-3!!! But, hardware commissioning is not finished in this sector, so clock is ticking faster for some than others… I mean people working underneath. Quite ambitious program for two days and first timers, btw the beam gets injected at point 2 and stopped by collimators before point 3. Don’t expects collisions yet, lot more hardware commissioning still to go. More details here if you are interested.

    I must say I am looking forward to when the guys at CERN throw the big switch and fire up the LHC for its 1st serious collision. Looking forward to the results that will follow. I am sure it will unfold the mystery.
