July 5, 2022:  It was a flawless start of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN reaching the highest energy proton-proton collisions at 13.6 TeV at 16:45 hrs. After years of preparation, we started taking data with a fully revamped ALICE detector recording the first 13.6 TeV collisions of Run 3.

The launch of the LHC Run 3 was streamed live on CERN’s social media channels and by high-quality Eurovision satellite links.

Here are the event displays of one of the first collisions:
