Watch Large Hadron Collider collisions live today

The Large Hadron Collider is preparing it’s first ever proton collision at 7 TeV and the event will take place live via a webcast direct from CERN headquarters

The live webcast of the first scheduled collisions has already begun and will continue till 5 pm (GMT), during which it is hoped two 3.5 TeV beams will be collided.


Although it is not guaranteed that scientists will achieve 7 TeV collisions today, the Large Hadron Collider will continue to run until autumn 2011, during which time the team will collect and analyse data from any successful collisions.

The first attempts to collide particles will begin at 8 am, and can be seen via CERN's webcast which will include live footage from the LHC control rooms, coverage of the experiments, step-by-step explanations of how collisions occur, as well as commentary and interviews with experts at the facility.

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
