For the Rest of Us at CERN

auditorium at cern, 0915 on 10 septThose of us here at CERN who don’t have something to do in one of the control rooms are in the auditoriums, watching the same webcast that anyone can watch:

See the webcast here

They’re putting the machine on right now. There was just a big burst of applause for the first milestone… I’d better stop blogging and go watch!

Update, 10:20: They’re telling us here that the beam has now made it around to ATLAS, seven eighths of the way around the LHC. See anything yet, Adam?

Update, 10:24: The LHC has gone around the entire ring! We just saw two spots at point 2, which means we were seeing the injected beam and the same beam on the second loop. Less than an hour, and already we’ve achieved the main goal of the day: the beam goes around and everything works. The room here broke into thunderous applause when we saw the two dots!
