Collisions Restart at the LHC

The LHC has started proton-proton collisions again as the accelerator is prepared for its upcoming physics run at 13 TeV. The beams are just being kept at the injection energy of 450 GeV, but runs like this are probably important for both getting the detectors ready and also helping tune the beam so that things go smoothly when they start ramping up the energy.
