LHC FTW !!!

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

As I wrote just last week, the 2011 dataset is going to be huge. And as a promising sign of great things to come: The LHC has already surpassed its previous instantaneous luminosity record!

That means more data, faster. Keep it coming!

I swear I’m not just sitting at home, watching the OP Vistars web page refresh… which it does automatically, btw. You can even have a program announce changes in the beam status out loud! Just saying. 🙂

LHC is GO!!!

Sunday, March 13th, 2011

Hi, all!

It feels like forever since the LHC last delivered proton-proton collisions (… in early November). There was a very productive stretch of heavy-ion collisions followed by the usual winter shutdown, and then a few weeks of machine development that ended… just now.

Yes: The first stable beam p-p collisions of the year are happening at this very moment! As always, you can see the LHC status live: here.

The 2011 dataset promises to be EPIC. Stay tuned — lots of physics to come!
