Not completely there…

Indeed at 21:40 (GMT+1) on Aug 8, the first shot into the LHC made it all the way to IR3 – way to go!! One can probably say that there were no major polarity problems or big magnetic errors, miraculous and thanks to all those working hard in the tunnel installing and commissioning the sector. Hope the trend continues all around.

Later around 2 am one of the aperture tests being carried had caused a minor quench (remember 450GeV & very low intensity). Some access is taking place both from the accelerator side and ALICE. Should resume early afternoon and continue injection tests. Will investigate further and update.

    I agree. This place is the best. Keep up the awesome work and good luck going forward. Hopefully you guys don’t run into any rabbit holes in your debugging. Wait, maybe that’s what you want… oh well, you know what I mean ;)

    Very well done,
    managing a project like the LHC must be so challenging,
    we are all waiting for new results from the esperiments!
    having some news directly here is really great.
