CERN LHC 7TeV Collisions now detecting!

Posted by Charbax – March 30, 2010

Wow, we are finally able to collide particles at full 7 TerraVolt power! Watch the awesome live webcast at: http://webcast.cern.ch/lhcfirstphysics/

I interviewed several of the core people working at the ATLAS experiment about 3 years ago, Pippa Wells project leader of the ATLAS Semi-Conductor Tracker and Allesandra Ciocio Deputy Commissioning Coordinator for the SCT (worked on ATLAS since 1994) when they were still building and installing all the thousands of cables for the detectors in the Large Hadron Collider ATLAS experiment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RftVXRXPbhM (a picture 2 of Pippa and Allesandra at work a few years ago) and my 1-hour video-interview and walkthrough the CERN GRID Computing project to distribute the computing of the terrabytes of data of the CERN LHC experiments that is now being transfered out to be processed at hundreds of data-centers around the world: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3429406569570342668

Check out my guided tour video that I filmed down at the CERN Large Hadron Collider ATLAS detector about 3 years ago:
