LHC Smashes Proton Beams

Last night in a tunnel near Geneva, Switzerland, CERN physicists smashed proton beams together for the first time in the Large Hedron Collider (LHC). The LHC was restarted last Friday after the massive machine was taken down for repairs in September 2008.

... and the CERN scientists celebrated:

It's still going to be awhile before we see any results from this thing, but at least the large hadron collider is colliding hadrons now.
