In the past few weeks, it started circulating beams and then they were able to ramp up the energy per beam to 6.5 trillion electron volts which is a new record, up from the previous 4 trillion electron volts. In our CMS detector, we were able to record beam splash events which light up the detector and tell you what is working and what isn't.

We are busy commissioning our detector to make sure that everything is working well. These beam splash events show things are going pretty well with our detector. Now we have to time the detector to coordinate it with the beam as well as align all of the detectors so we know where they are located w...
