Title: Electromagnet Move Down William Floyd Parkway, 6/24/13

At midnight on Monday, June 24, 2013, a 50-foot-wide, circular electromagnet began the second leg of a 3,200-mile land and sea voyage from Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York to a new home at Fmore »ermilab in Illinois. There, scientists will use it to study the properties of muons, subatomic particles that live only 2.2 millionths of a second, and the results could open the door to new realms of particle physics. During this leg, Emmert International transported the electromagnet 10 miles down William Floyd Parkway to the Smith Point Marina, where it was loaded on a barge later in the day.« less
