Huge, and fantastic, news: The LHC has had COLLISIONS.
Geneva, 23 Nov (THAINDIAN NEWS) Today the LHC circulated two beams simultaneously for the first time, allowing the operators to test the synchronization of the beams and giving the experiments their first chance to look for proton-proton collisions. With just one bunch of particles circulating in each direction, the beams can be made to cross in up to two places in the ring. From early in the afternoon, the beams were made to cross at points 1 and 5, home to the ATLAS and CMS detectors, both of which were on the lookout for collisions. Later, beams crossed at points 2 and 8, ALICE and LHCb
I wish to also point out that no black hole was created that swallowed us up and the earth did not just explode, in other words the LHC did not kill us. YAY!
