LHC Tested

Large Hadron Collider successfully switched on

The first beam in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN was successfully steered around the full 27 kilometres of the world’s most powerful particle accelerator yesterday.
In view of the opening of LHC, ICTP has been running a programme for the benefit of students, postdoctoral researchers and associate members, focusing on the ATLAS section of LHC. The programme is coordinated by Bobby Acharya of the ICTP High Energy Section, in collaboration with Marina Cobal of the INFN Gruppo Collegato di Udine and University of Udine, Italy.
