Press release: The 2016 physics season starts at the LHC

Geneva, 9 May 2016. CERN1's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and its experiments are back in action, now taking physics data for 2016 that will give us an improved understanding of fundamental physics.

On 25 March, the most powerful collider in the world was switched back on after its annual winter break. The accelerator complex and experiments have been fine-tuned using low-intensity beams and pilot proton collisions, and now the LHC and the experiments are ready to take an abundance of data.

Update: Statement on the reported defaced LGBT posters at CERN

As first reported by Physics World, CERN had to deal with defaced posters of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) group. CERN considers that these acts are unacceptable. They were strongly and publicly condemned.

Homophobic behaviour at CERN is not tolerated.  Disciplinary actions against people identified to have such behaviour have been taken and will be taken again as needed.
