The Final Countdown

Hi there!

This morning there’s been a press release from CERN announcing March 30th as the first attempt for collisions at 7 TeV! You can still follow CERN or ATLAS on Twitter for all the action…

A little reminder – these collisions will be 3.5 times higher energy than our competitors at the Tevatron, and 3 times higher than we reached at the end of last year (when the last record was set). Because of the higher energy, we should be able to quickly match the Tevatron’s sensitivity to “new physics” – what ever that might turn out to mean…

If all goes well, this will mark the start of a very exciting year in physics!!

Will things ever be the same again?? It’s the Final Countdown!!
