# Watch the LHC status updates live

The Large Hadron Collider has finally begun collecting data for 7 TeV collisions. They’ve set up an interesting live feed, in which you can keep an eye on the collision rate in each detector:

The nodes that say “PHYSICS” are detectors that are now actively collecting data. Click each one to see its live collision rate feed. Hi-res 3D images of ATLAS detector events can be found at their project website:

Images from the ALICE experiment area available through their website:

And, in case all this is still making you nervous, here are a few rants about black holes at the LHC. Enjoy!
