On March 30, CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) succeeded in a 7 TeV proton-proton collision, the most powerful collision ever achieved in human history. Two particle physics experiments, ATLAS and CMS, were successfully performed on LHC for detector operation and data collection, respectively. (For more details, see http://atlas.ch/, and http://www.atlas.ch/photos/events-collision.html )
High-energy physicists of USTC participated in the ATLAS and CMS experiments on LHC, making direct contributions to the success in the development of the detector, physical analysis, and computations for its large scale high-energy data grid.
