We just broke a world record at the Large Hadron Collider, for the highest-energy human-made particle collisions. We're one step closer to physics data collection at 13 TeV. Ask us anything about what's in store at this new energy frontier.

Edit: We're signing off now, but some of us may still be around to respond to questions later on. Stay tuned for physics at 13 TeV planned for early June.

Hi reddit!

Last week, the Large Hadron Collider had its first-ever collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 teraelectronvolts (TeV), breaking the world record for the highest energy attained in a particle accelerator. We're very excited to be back after our previous AMAs [1, 2], to discuss what lies ahead. We are:

  • Reyes Alemany Fernandez (raf), LHC operations
  • Andreas Weiler (aw), DESY and CERN Theory division
  • Federico Ronchetti (fr), INFN Frascati and ALICE Experiment
  • Beate Heinemann (bh), Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and ATLAS Experiment
  • Luca Malgeri (lm), CERN and CMS Experiment
  • Adam Morris (am), University of Edinburgh and LHCb Experiment

We'll sign our responses with our initials so you know who said what. Just to be clear, we are speaking with you in our personal capacities and CERN does not necessarily support the views expressed during the AMA. Joining us are a few of our friends from CERN:

We'll answer your questions from 16:00 until 17:30 CEST (UTC+02).

About CERN and the LHC

CERN is the European Laboratory for Particle Physics, located in Geneva, Switzerland. Its flagship accelerator is the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which has four main particle detectors: ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb. Nearly three years ago, CMS and ATLAS announced the discovery of a new particle that we now know is a Higgs boson. Scientists here are now looking forward to physics research at unprecedented energies.
