Last piece of the puzzle

We’re nearing the lowering of the final piece of the detector, should happen next week. Today I was out at the experiment, but wasn’t able to get to the cavern (my access expired sometime during my absence without my realizing it – there’s no warning, you’re just supposed to remember I guess) so I got to watch the YE-1 endcap move toward the end of the hall, where it will be lowered down. It is quite impressive to watch a mostly iron disk that’s something like 7 m in radius actually move – there isn’t much else that large that you actually see moving.

Anyway, a quickie, but just another reminder that the time to turn on the beam is looming!
