Many collisions will be needed to unveil the secrets eventually hidden at the 7 TeV energy regime.
After decades of planning. After years of delays and immeasureable amounts of patience and hard work. The physics operations of the LHC has begun!
After ramping of the beams to 3.5 TeV and tuning, final checks, and some emotions due to an unforeseen beam dump, the 7 TeV collisions finally appeared on the on-line monitors of the ATLAS Control Room.
So how will this whole "First 7 TeV Collisions" event happen? Well, here is my (somewhat naive) understanding of what will happen.
