describing the technicians responsible for computer security at the 
giant atom smasher as "schoolkids" . but reassuring scientists that they 
did not want to disrupt the experiment.

The hackers gained access to a website open to other scientists on 
Wednesday as the LHC passed its first test, sending its protons off on 
their dizzying journey through time and space, close to the speed of 
light.

The work of the scientists was not derailed and insiders scoffed at 
claims that the hackers were 'one step away' from the systems 
controlling the experiment itself. The engineering team completed four 
days of scheduled work in the first 24 hours but what physicists are 
really waiting for is the big bang machine's first collisions.
