The best way to watch just one beam is with the status-op display

I'll say Woah! too. In full motion video, none of this 20 sec. refresh still stuff.

Thanks for the find!

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

And CMS!

I'm always amused by the ATLAS control room; it seems optimally designed to reduce communication between people...

Of COURSE !... CMS, ALICE, LHCb, LHC...

I was speaking of ATLAS working on these new pages over the last 10 days...


That is a lot of people in that room. Normally that rooom is not that full. I think they are waiting for a important event...


Different subject... From the CMS Page "gather the experts in preparation for the first physics fills of the LHC."

I think its approaching time...

betcha its gonna be 4x4

While ATLAS is providing live feeds, CMS is providing awesome live coverage..

You know.... we need both...

The need a LHC TV.... Like NASA TV.. With a commentator...
