Looks like some Hadrons are gonna collide!

#1 Post by t.a.j. » 30 Mar 2010 12:36

After a failed attempt this morning, the Large Hadron Collider is up and running again and the beams are shaping up. If all goes well, soon here will be a collision of Protons.

Check the webcast here: http://webcast.cern.ch/lhcfirstphysics/
and the Twitter feed here: http://twitter.com/cern

and be a semi-witness to a great step in the history of physics!
I'm excited!

They say that there's a broken light for every heart on Broadway.
They say that life's a game, then they take the board away.
They give you masks and costumes and an outline of the story
Then leave you all to improvise their vicious cabaret...


Still the goddamn Batman.

Beams have reached an energy level of 3.5 Terraelectronvolts!

A funny sidenote: They have tons of technical difficulties with something as simple as that netstream. :D
Thrilling times anyway.

Someone better call Gordon Freeman and tell him to be ready.
And The Lord said unto John: 'Come forth and receive eternal life'.
But John came fifth, and won a toaster.

Yeah, I noticed that, too. Blame the media people for underestimating the amount of interest their little PR stunt would generate.

I think this was posted here earlier, but...

You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

Afaik, Reddit had sent an HL Manual, a toy headcrab and a crowbar to that guy.
