Congratulations to CERN

Congratulations to CERN for the successful launch of the LHC, the Large Hadron Collider, the latest excursion into the frontier of high energy particle physics!

 

For more than 25 years the energy frontier machine has been Fermilab’s Tevatron, the 1983 superconducting extension of the 1972 Main Ring. Now the LHC will be the machine at the energy frontier. The LHC will enable high energy physicists from around the world to explore deeper into the unknown frontiers of the universe. While the times and technology are vastly different in 2008, much of the same excitement and drama of the turn on of CERN’s LHC was felt by physicists at the turn on of Fermilab’s  Main Ring (see http://history.fnal.gov/main_ring.html#proton) and the superconducting Energy Doubler/Saver (see http://history.fnal.gov/transition.html), now called the Tevatron (see http://history.fnal.gov/lml_tevatron.html#saver). Although the dress styles are different the spirit remains the same as the frontier beckons!
