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.
