The Large Hadron Collider has beaten another record by delivering about 111/pb in 24 hours to ATLAS. The total came in two runs with a turn-round of just 2 hours 5 minutes in between, also another record for the LHC.
This follows a frustrating period of technical hitches that has been limiting luminosity production since the last technical stop. Of course any such difficulties should be kept in perspective. The Large Hadron Collider is currently running at over 10 times the luminosities anticipated for this year and has already delivered nearly twice the total predicted for this year, but the more you have the more you want.
A possibly more worrying problem is that CMS was apparently only able to record about half the collision data today. There is as yet no word on what problems it may be experiencing.
Update 4-Aug-2011: The second of these runs which was fill number 2000 provided more records by continuing for 21 and a half hours (the longest yet) and delivering 90.6/pb to ATLAS (the most for a single run).
