We’d like to thank the tenacious physicists and powerful accelerators at Fermilab for giving the Muon g-2 ring a second life. Also, Emmert International, way to completely slay the engineering challenge of this cross-country move. The massive electromagnet arrived safely at its new home in Illinois, and we’re told the Midwest greeted the super-sensitive machine with open arms.
Reidar Hahn took this shot in front of Fermilab’s Wilson Hall. Ignore those storm clouds, by the way—the future is bright as can be. Brookhaven is still involved in the collaboration, and we can’t wait to share news of physics-shaking discoveries after the ring powers up.
