No Run III for the Tevatron

The Tevatron will shutdown at the end of Fiscal Year 2011

The Tevatron will shutdown at the end of Fiscal Year 2011

As was announced today by the director of Fermilab (see here) there will be no extension to the running of the Tevatron beyond 2011.

As stated:

“The present budgetary climate did not permit DOE to secure the additional funds needed to run the Tevatron for three more years as recommended by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel.”

This marks a very sad day for me to hear that the experiment I am working on and have grown to love will be ending after this year.

It is especially hard to hear considering that this choice is being made (at least publicly) by budgetary considerations and not by the recommendation of the science that drives field.

I’ll probably have more to say on this in the coming days…but for now I have a PhD to finish and thought it would be worth while to post briefly on this.
