How long will it take before we start getting any meaningful info about what the data shows?

I don't think I can wait that long.

The early data analyses (for the 0.9 TeV collisions) are fairly extensive. The new, high-energy, high-luminosity data won't be ready to publish until later this year. There's a big push here to have presentations ready for some international conferences in the late summertime.

What happened to the article a week or so ago that said the LHC was going to be shut down for a very long time again? This new article seems to contradict the last one.
[–]RedditBlocksMyLinks 9 points10 points11 points 8 years ago (7 children)
The LHC will be running for the rest of 2010 & all of 2011. The year-long shutdown required to get the machine ready for 14 TeV (center-of-mass) collisions will happen during 2012.

Wait, wasn't 7 TeV the maximum capacity of the LHC?
[–]RedditBlocksMyLinks 1 point2 points3 points 8 years ago (5 children)
7 TeV per beam, which gives 14 TeV collisions. That's not going to happen for some time now.

I'm so confused. Who knew particle physics could be so complicated?
[–]robeph 1 point2 points3 points 8 years ago (2 children)
Two cars traveling towards each other collide, both are going 70 miles per hour. The total speed/energy exhibited would be the same as a single vehicle traveling 140 mph hitting a solid structure.
[–]Jestersimon 0 points1 point2 points 8 years ago (1 child)
Now, if those two cars leave New York and Chicago at the same time, both traveling 70 miles per hour, how long after they collide before the next of kin are notified?

Now I'm confused.

That's apparently going to happen later this year.
You mean they are still pretending LHC is not part of a black hole?
[–]jwilsonjx 2 points3 points4 points 8 years ago (3 children)
They should have held out for Dec 21, 2012.
[–]MadScientist420 4 points5 points6 points 8 years ago (2 children)
They're saving their runs at 14 TeV for that date.
[–]dropkickdog 1 point2 points3 points 8 years ago (1 child)
I wouldn't put it past them to actually run it that day. Just to have everybody in the world on edge.
[–]MadScientist420 1 point2 points3 points 8 years ago (0 children)
I send the guy who made that decision at least $1 for making my day.

HOLY SHIT! THAT'S WAY TOO MANY TEVS. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING!!!!!!
[–]nerfy007 0 points1 point2 points 8 years ago (2 children)
How many TEV's make a resonance cascade?

At least they are waiting until PAX is over. Will be a decent last event.

When you go in circles with a finger on top of the surface of a glass cup, the cup slowly starts emitting a sharp sound. That sound is known as resonance; your finger moving around causes the glass to shake so much that it makes that noise.
On another note, Tesla proved over a century ago that the same principle can be applied to create earthquakes. He actually almost created one in New York using this principle of resonance.
Now imagine that instead of going around in circles the size of a small cup, you're going around in circles the size of LHC, creating a huge HUGE amount of resonance.
BTW, did anyone notice the increasing numbers of earthquakes and volcanoes recently? I believe a volcano is about to erupt in Iceland now and another huge earthquake might hit Nepal...

Armaini, you say? Are those next to the genuine Panaphonics, or the Sorny?
