The LHC is making news this morning by setting a record of particle acceleration long held by Fermilab in Chicago. This
article marks the actual news bulletin issued by CERN, but this
article is more fun since it shows you some of the sensory evidence.
I thought it interesting to compare what an equivalent energy is to the trillion electron volts and it is about the energy of a flying mosquito: it is just concentrated to the centerline of proton.
Any folks from CERN that want to elaborate on the analyses that are planned with the LHC in 2010?
