Re: 5 sigma Higgs !!!

Call me crazy but in all fairness I am very disappointed - I still believe that the standard model is an abomination and I was really hoping for a "reset". That being said congrats to all involved, very nice job !

Anything happening ?

Well a bit provocative I know... but with that nice luminosity is there anything on the radar ? I don't ask for specifics - I know about all the embargoes and restrictions on information - but just something in the tune "yes, we are seeing interesting or even better, unexpected events ?"

Just wondering - how far are we to get "usable" luminosity (ie. a meaningful amount of collisions) ?

Re: Collisions are occuring now

So if I understand the above posts correctly we are still a long way from having an "useful" amount of collisions ? Is there any schedule for that ?

Re: Collisions are occuring now

60 Hz is much better than 1-2 Hz last year. But still - I think they'll have to increase number of bunches per beam soon if they want to collect the planned amount of data. Just wondering... what is the planned rate once everything is fully operational ? Much higher than 60 Hz ? Also what is the ex...
