From Tecnomania, March 21, 2018: Esta animación muestra sobre unas bonitas imágenes aéreas el funcionamiento de los aceleradores de partículas del Fermilab –nombre coloquial del Laboratorio Nacional Fermi– que se construyó en 1967 en Illinois (Estados Unidos) hace ya la friolera de más de 50 años. Actualmente lo están «actualizando» y ampliando para llevar a cabo nuevos experimentos.

The 6,800-acre Fermilab site is home to a chain of particle accelerators that provide particle beams to numerous experiments and R&D programs. This 2-minute animation shows how particles travel through the accelerator complex at close to the speed of light.

Throwback Thursday to March 2006, when this photo was taken. Fermilab’s Duane Newhart sits inside a giant magnet, whose construction began in 1947.

On May 23, after seven weeks of commissioning a recently completed addition to the Fermilab accelerator chain, a team of accelerator experts successfully delivered first particle beams to the Muon g-2 storage ring magnet.
