LHC began its 2011 season

Spotlight on CERN has been reformatted in 2011. Aside from some not-too-shocking answers that Rolf Heuer gave the lady, Anna Cook, in the TV News Studio, two chaps show you the 15 km of service tunnels; press review; the need for kids to talk about research instead of computer games and soccer, like 100 years ago; and some cartoons.

Last night, two days before the expected beginning, the LHC collider has begun to circulate the protons. Collisions shouldn't be too far. ;-)

We should quickly see collisions at the 2010 peak luminosities, i.e. not far from 50/pb per month and increasing.
