On March 6, a 30,000-pound B3 magnet was changed out in the F17 area. The old magnet had failed, and the magnet mover was used to remove it and install the new magnet.

From IEEE Spectrum, Jan. 30, 2019: If realized, the Future Circular Collider will produce magnetic fields nearly twice as strong as the LHC and accelerate particles to unprecedented energies of 100 teraelectron volts, compared to the Large Hadron Collider’s energies of 13 TeV. Whereas the magnetic system at the LHC can achieve strengths of 8.3 teslas, the FCC system would be able to achieve 16 T.

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