LHC has passed 5 fb^-1

LHC has passed the legendary 5 fb-1 data amount mark! It was originally believed that only 1 fb-1 was possible with the LHC, and if everything went perfect 3 fb-1 could be obtainable. The 5 fb-1 mark is thus remarkably extraordinary, and provides really good conditions for the on-going Higgs search - it is more than 100 times all previous data!
