LHC Screeniness

Just had to post following last nights fun as the LCH team broadcast from their various control rooms as the massive collider did its thing. The science is incredible, the engineering astounding and the volume of specialists involved staggering. Given all that, I really loved how many screens they had running in each control room, layers of them surrounding everyone - great to see.

The event was being broadcast over the web and with a fair bit of twittering around that. They have uploaded videos of the evening as well. Anyhow, I really need more screens, or at least a nicer second screen...
