The initial image — which was taken while the spacecraft was staring at a fixed patch of sky and is being used to calibrate the spacecraft's pointing system — covers a patch of space about three times larger than the full moon, NASA stated. The area was selected because it does not contain any unusually bright objects, which could damage instrument detectors if observed for too long, NASA stated. The "first-light" picture shows thousands of stars and covers an area three times the size of the moon.

"Before it started in September 2008, the particle collider drew protests from Europeans worried it would trigger a disaster, with some scenarios suggesting the accelerator would create a black hole that would swallow the Earth. Physicists and CERN officials dismissed the concerns, with the LHC project leader saying in 2008, "Obviously, the world will not end when the LHC switches on.""
