On June 22, 2013, a 50-foot-wide electromagnet ring departed Brookhaven National Laboratory, located near Long Island, NY, to make a sea-and-land journey to Fermilab in Batavia, Ill. Check out the 36-picture photo gallery.

For the past month, a 50-foot-wide circular electromagnet has been on a fantastic journey between two U.S. Department of Energy national labs: Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois. On Friday, July 26, that voyage is expected to conclude. Fermilab is planning a party to celebrate the ring’s safe arrival, and everyone’s invited.
