today is the Fermilab Tevatron’s last day of operation after running for 28 years. The CDF and D0 experiments are taking our last bit of data right now before the accelerator is turned off for good at about 2pm.
Some events this afternoon are being streamed on the internet (starting 1:45 pm) if you are interested: http://www-visualmedia.fnal.gov/live/110930Tev.htm
You can also see http://www.fnal.gov/pub/tevatron/index.html for more information about the Tevatron. If you visit that page, and then click on “For the Media” on the left, you can scroll down and see photos of the CDF Control Room featuring our four Baylor Ph.D. students on CDF — Martin Frank (in the back), Zhenbin Wu, Karen Bland, and Sam Hewamanage (in the front).
