After much wait time and work the Large Hadron Collider is smash the high energy frontier in two and after testing their two beams at 3.5 TeV each they plan on attempting collisions tonight/tomorrow for the first time at this large center of mass energy.
This is a huge milestone for the world of particle physics and while we may not get collisions or new physics data right away you can be sure it will come along shortly.
Interestingly, you can follow the progress of the LHC and one of the experiments (CMS) on your iPhone, Droid, or other smart phone.
Thanks to Tom McCauley you can now follow CMS TV on the iPhone, to see LHC Page 1, CMS Page 1, etc. http://cmsdoc.cern.ch/~mccauley/m-cmstv/ to save it as a Home icon (with a nice CMS logo): -- open the URL in Safari on the iPhone -- click the + sign at the bottom -- Click "Add to Home Screen"
Sure is amazing to be living in the world where the public will know as quickly
as the experts when collisions occur
