The LHC at CERN began operation in late 2008, but was soon halted by a technical incident. It was repaired and started again in late 2009, and the talk will describe some of the engineering challenges, the successful operation of the collider and the detectors, and the expected physics discoveries of the 'world's largest experiment'. The speaker is just one of the thousands of physicists and engineers involved in designing and building the machine and its associated detectors. 19:30 start, coffee from 19:00. Organised jointly by IOP and IET, non-members welcome.
