Last night they did already some circulating tests. For now they only circulating particles around the LHC and dumping them.

I dont know if there are doing collisions yet!?

Don\\\'t hold your breath...

This SHOULD have been the SSC.

But wait we Americans don\\\'t need Science - we have the Bible!

If you go to the Cafe you\'ll find a post by bigmac, a developer, which states that CERN is not going to support LHC@home. If you like physics go to Einstein@home, you will crunch both the data of the LIGO interferometers (in Washington and Louisiana) and the radio data from the Arecibo radio telescope looking for binary pulsar systems. If you find one your name is published in the Einstein home page. The results (positive or negative) of the interferometers are published in Physical Review D, with acknowledgment of the volunteers, although not by name, there are too many.

You\'re right, of course. I was going to correct it myself.

I knew a theoretical physicist would do that tullio

Well, not always. Wolfgang Pauli said the the electron could not spin because the classical electron radius would go faster then the speed of light, so poor Uhlenbeck and Goudsmit never received a Nobel prize...

If and when there is work in this project, it is important to get the news into the RSS feed. For reasons based in the inscrutable workings of the BOINC software, it is advised that we be detached from projects with no work.

So, we will need to know to re-attach.

Thanks.

The way they reported this story on the local news made me want to tear my hair out. They called the lhc an \"atom bomb smasher\" and said it was to be used to \"recreate the big bang theory.\" Ugh! I did look on their website and they have it correct there. They must have gotten some e mails about it.
