Results from Heavy Ion Collisions at the LHC

In November 2010 the Large Hadron Collider at CERN started to collide heavy ion beams. The collisions of lead ions occurred at the center of mass of 2.76 TeV/nucleon, about 14 times higher than at previous accelerators. The hot and dense QCD matter created in these collisions is being studied by the state of the art detectors. I will present several of the striking first results obtained by the LHC experimental collaborations. In particular, I will discuss the global properties of the produced matter and I will describe in more detail the observation of strong quenching of jets.
