The arrival of the Muon g-2 electromagnet at Fermilab is expected on Friday, July 26. Fermilab employees, users and neighbors are invited to watch as Emmert International, the company responsible for the magnet’s relocation from Brookhaven National Laboratory near Long Island, NY, slowly transports the giant, 50-foot-diameter magnet across Fermilab grounds.

A public event to mark the move begins at 5:30 p.m. on July 26 in Wilson Hall. The magnet is expected to pass near Wilson Hall at 6:30 p.m. Viewing areas will be set up in front of Wilson Hall. A group photo with the ring and all people present will be taken around 7 p.m.

More information on this final leg of the magnet’s long journey will be available next week.
