Overexcited about beam circulation
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

A lot of science web sites seem to be excited about plans for the initial beam circulation in the Large Hadron Collider on September 10. While it’s a great step into getting the particle accelerator online, I’m a bit less excited about it than others. Personally, I’m waiting for the start of actual collisions between opposing beams a month or two later, which is when we’ll start to get some real scientific data.

I wonder if this makes me a dour wet blanket?
