LHC: scientific motivations and first results
& Gian Giudice
CERN, Physics Department
ABSTRACT: The Large Hadron Collider is one of the most ambitious
projects in science ever. It started operation at CERN
at the end of 2009, opening the exploration era of
an unprecedented energy scale.
We present the highlights of the first months of operation,
as well as first detector performance and physics results,
with emphasis on the ATLAS experiment.
Then, after reminding briefly the role of big projects in the
present scientific landscape, we will discuss the LHC
physics motivations and the questions the LHC experiments
are expected to address.
