As reported yesterday, the LHC is ready to collide particles this morning. CERN has started the live webcast and you can watch the LHC control room and be there first hand when it blows up - just kidding.

The LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is set to generate collisions at 7 TeV (3.5 TeV per beam). It is not known yet when the first collision will happen.

Currently CERN expects the first collisions in a couple of hours.
Update:
13:06 CEST: Beams collided at 7 TeV in the LHC at 13:06 CEST, marking the start of the LHC research program. Particle physicists around the world are looking forward to a potentially rich harvest of new physics as the LHC begins its first long run at an energy three and a half times higher than previously achieved at a particle accelerator. More details.

11:25AM CET: The beams are in again. New round!

10:22AM CET: The Beam got lost and the LHC needs to be restarted. Watch the webcast for details.
