CCW direction complete!

Wow, the LHC control room is packed. I'm still following the
webcast ... And now the counterclockwise beam, Beam 2, has made it
through the entire ring! Now both beams have completely circulated
through the entire 27-kilometer ring. This is a great achievement.
Congrats to all of the LHC engineers and accelerator physicists!

Around 4:30pm CERN time I'll be in the ATLAS control room to connect to
Brookhaven and celebrate with them for their media day. I'm thrilled
we have something to celebrate!

A bientôt!

(P.S. sorry about the messiness... I'm posting from my iPhone in the
CERN auditorium)
