A few minutes ago, one of the beams of the LHC was ramped up to an energy of 1180 GeV, besting the Tevatron’s top beam energy of 980 GeV.
Update: Actually the beam was lost at 1040 GeV, which is still a record high energy.
Update: A few minutes ago both beams were successfully ramped up simultaneously to 1180 GeV.
Update: Wow, that was quick. First publication based on LHC data is now out, from ALICE, based on data gathered a week ago. Nothing at all unexpected, this is just based on 284 total events, at the already well-studied energy of 900 GeV.
