Where To Watch For LHC Startup News August 11, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in ATLAS, LHC.
A few posts back some folks were wondering where to watch for LHC news as the startup nears. The “LHC First Beam” website seems like a pretty good place to start. For example, recently posted:
After a period of optimization, one bunch was kicked up from the transfer line into the LHC beam pipe and steered about 3 kilometres around the LHC itself on the first attempt. On Saturday, the test was repeated several times to optimize the transfer before the operations group handed the machine back for hardware commissioning to resume on Sunday.
Hey! There has been beam in the LHC!! The website contains a “count-down” clock too. 28 days…
Now I have a stupid question for the folks putting this website together: Why isn’t there a RSS feed!?!?! So old-skool!
