Re: Collisions are occuring now

ATLAS just reported a collision rate of 50/60Hz, which is apparently as planned.

Re: Proton vs Graphite

Exactly how fast is 3.5TeV? 3.5TeV is 5.6E-7 Joules. As E = 1/2mv^2, m being mass and v being velocity: v = sqrt(2*E*m) Assuming m is 2000kg for a car: v = sqrt(5.6E-7 * 2000 * 2) Which comes out as 2.4E-5 m/s, or 5.3E-5 mph. I'd happily get in a car doing that, if I didn't feel like going anywhere...

If you're unsure of what to add, here's a few tips: 1. http://lhc.evoludo.com/index.php/Special:Wantedpages - Any page listed here has been linked to, but hasn't been written. You don't need to write an essay - even if you just say that quarks make up hadrons, it's better than no page at all! 2. htt...

Re: Rock stable beams

Ah, but looks can be deceiving … on “Page 1” the “Stable Beam” flags always remained red and set to “false.” This means that they never met the standard for “LHC Stable Beams.” Stable Beams is a manually set flag (or at least I remember it being as such), indicating to the experiments that the beam...

Re: ** Current Events and discussion **

Cryo issues in 56 caused an emergency dump around 0830. Oddly, 34 is now showing up red (although as it's now access, this may be intentional) with 56 as green. Another plan out the window I guess :P
