8 TeV Collisions

Ladies & Gentlemen, Protons & Neutrons,

The Large Hadron Collider’s Accelerator Division has successfully collided, for the first time, two 4 TeV proton beams! Congratulations to all who made this possible. I can promise that everyone is looking forward to what may be discovered!

Now enjoy some images courteous of @lhcstatus and @ATLASExperiment.

 

@ATLASExperiment: First 8 TeV collisions from the #LHC in the #ATLAS detector! Thank you LHC operators. Next week: #Physics! @CERN http://pic.twitter.com/ItAbbl64 (Note: Yes, this is actually an 8 TeV collision.)

Happy Colliding!

PS: Data-taking for physics starts next week. Happy Friday.
