Part of the LHCb detector was turned on during the recent LHC beam test, and they have some neat pictures of the first events recorded from the LHC here.

Awesome! Can you explain a little bit about what we are looking at? Thanks!
these are tracks reconstructed by the Vertex Locator VeLo. These tracks are generated by protons hitting deliberately a collimator during the injection test and generating secondary particles, which are detected in the VeLo.
You can see in addition to the reconstructed tracks the r- and phi-strips of the Vertex Locator, which were triggered and highlighted by the software.
Good luck for all 4 experiments!
These first events are the result of collisions between beam protons and detector atoms?
These were collisions between beam protons and a beam stopper before LHCb, which was on purpose left in for initial tests. After these tests, the stopper was pulled out and the beam travelled through LHCb without problems to its planned destination at point 7.
[...] der LHC letztens schon erste Protonen teilweise im Kreis herumgeschickt hat, konnte LHCb bereits erste Messungen3 mit dem Protonenstrahl durchführen, zur Freude aller 700 Mitarbeiter. Und dass die auch [...]
Guys what are we allowing the bunch of idiot scientist do.
These scientist are not sure what they say. They change statements every moment and dont achieve much success for human kind. They have till now produced things which are mass destruction weapons or experiments.
And we are all silent even though we know that this experiment of LHC could eat the whole planet and it means the end of life indeed. Still Alas we are silent.
Wake up brothers and sisters and be against these crazy scientist and lets utilise our brain and money in making our earth better place to live for us and for the people to come.
SAVE OUR PLANET EARTH and let us not allow them to KILL IT!!!
