Title: Animation of Fermilab's Accelerator Complex

Abstract

The 6,800-acre Fermilab site is home to a chain of particle accelerators that provide particle beams to numerous experiments and R&D programs. This 2-minute animation explains how the proton source provides the particles that get accelerated and travel through the accelerator complex at close to the speed of light. Scientists use these beams to generate protons, neutrons, muons, pions and neutrinos for various research areas across the Fermilab site. More than 4,000 scientists from over 50 countries use Fermilab and its particle accelerators, detectors and computers for their research. More information is at http://www.fnal.gov/pub/science/.
