First splash events in CMS 2018

Splash events 2018 celebration Andres G. Delannoy

On March 30, 2018 CMS recorded the first events 2018. These are so-called splash events, in which only one beam is threaded into the LHC accelerator and hits a collimator near CMS. The resulting particle shower is recorded. The start has worked well and now we are looking forward to many good data in 2018.
