LHC collider has delivered at 9:50 today 2 fb-1 of luminosity to LHCb this year corresponding to about 100 million million of proton-proton collisions visible at LHCb. This was possible thanks to an exceptional performance of the machine and an impressive commitment from everybody involved in the operation of LHC in this very long running year. The image shows how the LHCb Collaboration thanks the LHC operation team on the LHC status screens which are visible in the control rooms all over CERN and on the Web. The collider is currently running with very high efficiency. This can be seen in the image where very long proton-proton collisions periods are interleaved by short set-up intervals.
