One point twenty-one gigawatts!!!

The LHC is on, running at 3.5 trillion electron volts (TeV). Protons have been smashed together, creating explosions that only house-sized sensors can feel. So far, no word of black holes eating all of France and Switzerland.

This does mean that the Tevatron at Fermilab, just outside of Chicago, has officially been out-gunned. I’ll bet the cows grazing above the Tevatron are pissed.
