Large Hadron Collider now actually colliding protons!



LARGE HADRON COLLIDER PRODUCES FIRST PROTON COLLISIONS IN BIG BANG MISSION


I can’t explain why, but this news makes me extraordinarily excited, proud, humble, thrilled, wonderstruck, optimistic…  [insert further relevant emotions here].


Our Universe is a miraculous event.
Won’t it be fun to try and find out just what makes it so?


{ image from Boston Big Picture and I strongly recommend you click-thru  for yet another must-see LHC collection. This particular portrait features a “Compact Muon Solenoid”, a particle detector much like ALICE and ATLAS. I love lyrical jargon and acronyms the meanings of which fly stratospherically — nay, sub-orbitally far above my head. }
