Furthermore beam splash events have been observed at the ATLAS, ALICE (possibly), CMS, and LHCb detectors. @CERN tweeted an excellent commentary throughout. CERN have made more progress this weekend than in the 9 days of operation last year. Your correspondent can confirm that all the associated memes were alive and well on the #lhc timeline.
