Re: 2012 Events Discussion

Yep! First collisions of 2012 and first ever anywhere at 8 TeV. Now on to lumi scans and lossmaps. More prep over the weekend and Science by next week. The LHC is celebrating the start of the 2012 Science season they are having a Google plus On Air Hangout on Wednesday April 4 at 4:00 PM CERN time (...

Re: Neutrinos go faster then light !

The sound of shoes dropping, not sure if this is one or the other but I'm sure no one is too surprised.

Re: Neutrinos go faster then light !

A very good article here in the Of Particular Significance Blog. http://profmattstrassler.com/2012/02/24/finally-an-opera-plot-that-makes-some-sense/ From the above. "As I suspected all along (and contrary to the original press reports), the OPERA experimenters do not claim to have found the cause o...

Re: Neutrinos go faster then light !

Big Big news to day. It was all a dream. Well would you believe a faulty fibre optic connector? How about a 'problem' with an oscillator? There is supposed to be a press statement issued on Thursday. http://www.globalnews.ca/world/world/european+researchers+find+flaw+in+experiment+that+measured+fast...

Re: 2012 Events Discussion

Hi Rudolfist, my guess would be that they are still weeks away from beam and the RF cavities cool relatively quickly. Right now they are doing current testing on the magnets in the green sectors.

Re: CMS Hangout this Friday night

Unfortunately it was not an on air hangout which has a live stream the public can view during the event. They did say in comments for the original post I linked to above that they were recording the event for later playback. They also said that they would likely do a real ON Air hangout at some late...
