Re: *** COLLISION ALERT ***

yeah, i noticed its intensity drop like a sack of bricks on the BRAN count rate chart.. Yet page 1 still shows beam on at 1.22e+10 :? weird, eh? ._. or am i just missing something? I think I trust the Status Op page more on this. I've seen it cut out before if data is lost but not drop so I'm guess...

You can tell something big is coming up by the number of people hanging around.

Re: What does ... mean?

I've noticed the SMP 'beam presence' sometimes says 'false' even when there is a low intensity beam present (>3e9)

Re: Several biggest errors of particle physicists.

Well I must admit I'm not really finding this fun, just irritating. You are wasting your breath trying to convince him. He's wrong, very badly wrong, proven so but he won't listen because in his own head he's completely certain he's discovered something enormous and no one is going to be allowed to ...

Re: *** COLLISION ALERT ***

Interesting to note that on the same schedule between the 1700h and 0000h collisions they are doing 'Trial ramp plus pre-cycle'

Maybe there's a chance that they might make the 0000h collisions higher than 450GeV if things go well ?

Re: I cant keep up - huge thanks !

Huge thanks to you Chris for setting this up. It's given me (and I'm sure many others) a huge insight into this amazing project that I would never have had the time, dedication resourcefulness to find out for myself. I love the notion of the human race pushing boundaries, the idea of exploring the u...

I guess a lot of you will have seen this but I haven't seen it mentioned on this forum.

Great fun and actually makes a good job of explaining what the LHC is all about.
