Big step forward in LHC operation last night

19th March 2010 – Last night a new very important milestone has been reached by the LHC: two counter-circulating proton beams beams have been accelerated for the first time to 3.5 TeV, the energy that they should routinely reach in the 2010-2011 running period.
