Large Hadron Collider completes massive stress test

Now that the Large Hadron Colliderhas recovered from the faulty weld last September that ground everything to a halt and flooded the facility with liquid helium, CERN is working to make sure that everything is ready for particles to start colliding again soon.
To that end, CERN gave the LHC's massive network a thorough stress test at the end of last month. The Collider sent out data to 11 computer centers across Europe, Asia, and North America, which in turn relayed the data to 140 locations in 33 countries to be crunched. A whopping 4 GB a second was cranked out from the LHC, though researchers predict that, while operating, the LHC will only send out around 1.3 GB of data. In other words, the Large Hadron Collider's network should be good to go.
It wasn't the LHC itself sending out the data, though, as it's still shut down. To test the network, CERN sent out some auxiliary research related to cosmic rays. The test will be repeated in the coming weeks.
If all goes well, we should hear more about the LHC in the near future, as it ramps up for it's firing in October.
There’s a spreadsheet program that comes with the Mac Operational System which is called Apple Numbers. Actually, it’s a part of Apple’s iWork suite. This program crates files with data organized into rows and columns and may as well be provided with some graphs, tables, images and formulas. Rows are usually labeled with numbers while columns are labeled using letters. An Individual sell can be determined by a unique combination of both. Read more
Photo editing can be a cumbersome and time consuming job, but it's what makes the end product even more stunning. To do this, there are tons of software that allow you to work on your material anywhere without the new of installing it on your computer.
