LHC to start with 3.5 TeV beams August 6, 2009

Posted by apetrov in Particle Physics, Physics, Science.

It looks like things at LHC are progressing quite fast. Last week, at DPF-2009, we heard a talk from  Lyn Evans that LHC will start in November with energies “as close as possible to, but not above 5TeV” per beam.  Now, Interactions.org reported that the start-up energy would be 3.5 TeV per beam.  I’m curious how many physics projections will need to be updated for this first lower-energy scenario. And when LHC will ramp up to full 7 TeV x 7 TeV design energy…
