LHC is go

LHC is seeing collisions ! Twitterers have been seeing this stuff all day, and Lord Drayson is awfully excited, but for the rest of you, here is a message from Edinburgh LHCb chum Franz Muheim with the key links :


Dear all,

Today at about 13:06 CEST the LHC has started colliding proton beams at 7 TeV. 🙂

This is the start of a new era in particle physics.

The webcast is ongoing at
