Looks like Fermilab’s Tevatron is shutting down at the end of this year. Bummer.

  1. Hmm. Perhaps they’ll have a garage sale and we can pick up a particle accelerator on the cheap. That would up the mad science ante considerably!

  2. I got to see the Tevatron a few years ago on a work trip. The weird thing is that all of the computers and equipment around it look like they’re from the 60s or 70s (because they are). It reminded me of the tech you see in the movie The Andormeda Strain. But it was really cool to see it.
