  • "It is the job of our computers to retain details of the interesting collisions – and only the interesting ones," says Pierluigi Campana, spokesman for the LHCb, one of the collider's main experiments.

  • CERN said that later last Friday the first beam of protons followed the same route — and then on Saturday protons were sent through the LHCb detector.

  • Later, beams crossed at points 2 and 8, where the ALICE (heavy ion detector) and the LHCb (looking for heavy particles containing a bottom quark) are positioned.

  • The four detectors are Alice, Atlas, CMS and LHCb, which are set to look for specific physics, and these record a vast amount of data per p on p-bar beam.

  • For those physicists, the latest data from the LHCb detector - which is particularly sensitive to matter-antimatter anomalies in the decay of B-mesons - might represent a bit of a letdown. Top headlines 2011

  • A spokesperson for the LHCb experiment, Tara Shears of Liverpool University, told the BBC that her team's results "put supersymmetry on the spot." Top headlines 2011

  • Earlier results from the Tevatron had suggested a few types of B meson decays might hint at a difference from the Standard Model, but the LHCb data, which already has a greater statistical certainty, indicates that the difference from the Standard Model is insignificant.

  • According to Dr Tara Shears of Liverpool Liverpool University, a spokesman for the LHCb experiment: "It does rather put supersymmetry on the spot".
