Standby for 7 TeV Collisions

We’ve been getting word that 7 TeV collisions are supposed to start happening tonight as early as 7 am at CERN (1 am Eastern standard time). As I’m writing the sign on the LHC Ops page is Beam Status: Ramp (the current energy is 480  GeV… no wait 500 GeV and rising 🙂 ). I’ll be watching the ATLAS control room live tonight (got the coffee pot going already)… but for those of you who want to watch too here’s a couple of links:

From the LHC control room. The webcast will start at 8:30 am at CERN (2:30 am Eastern).

From the ATLAS control room.

This one is already live streaming. Be on the look-out for my former roommate Stephanie, she’s run coordinator for the Liquid Argon Calorimeter tonight… and I’m sure she’ll appreciate me mentioning her in the post. I’m so jealous she’s there on the front lines. I know we’re all really nervous and hope everything goes well.

So tune in to watch!!!
