Re: Current Events Discussion

2 hrs+ uptime and flattop on P1, looks like a good run start for sure.

Re: Current Events Discussion

Very nice run today, 10hrs + @ 3.5TeV and still going! I think this would be another record. Lots of fireworks in the experiments too!

Re: ** Current Events and discussion **

Have the beams crossed path yet? but without the detectors on? There are magnets to keep the beams apart in the experiments but so far they have not been used so there could have been collisions but since they have only 1 bunch in each beam and are keeping them out of sync with each other it was un...
