G'Day Ron;

(Glad to see you've recovered from that wild star-party the other night)
;):)

I've been watching the build-up on this one. Its the first test of Alice' so I'm a little skeptical about any resulting news from it.

Great photo, though .. good for publicity.

I've read that what you get with collisions of particles as big as these is 'a big mess'. Seems this is a stress test for Alice's data collection capabilities.

Interesting progress though can't wait for 'em to crank 'er up to 'the max'. Then it'll be super interesting !
:)

Cheers
