First colliding beams in LHC

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

I blogged about the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on September 10 last year when the system was first started up. Only nine days after that event the LHC operations had to be stopped due to a serious equipment fault which took over a year to repair.

The system recently has been put back in operation and only three days after that, on November 23, the first high-energy collisions (colliding beams) occured!

The good news of all this: WE ARE STILL HERE! (there are people who believe that the LHC will cause the earth to vanish in a black hole…?!?)

And now the scientists can start their quest to proof that time travel is possible! 😉
