It is 6am at CERN and I am in the UK, remaining awake and looking out for anything interesting going on. This is a very different experience to when we first collided at 900 GeV and I was physically there, although my sleep levels are the same! I am hoping that if collisions happen in the next few hours, I can catch some footage and show any interested people later on today. I am a little jumpy as LHC have been playing around with both beams since around 5.15.I think it’s time for some tea.
If you want to follow what’s going on (as much as anyone not physically present can), try these links:
With these, be sure to refresh your browser. And of course what we will have at Birmingham in a few hours will be much better. Also, from
8.30 onwards, there is an LHC First Physics live webcast and ATLAS will have something similar streaming on their webpage.
ATLAS do have webcams in their ACR but they seem to be forbidden access
to non-ATLAS members. Happy geeking
