    Tevatron Ring

    Turn right here at the end of the pond onto Pine Street.

    [2 SECOND PAUSE]

    After turning, look to your right. You’ll see a large earthen berm that curves away. The Tevatron tunnel sits twenty to thirty feet below the berm. The Tevatron was the world's most powerful accelerator for more than 25 years. It was used for a number of discoveries, including the discovery of the top quark, the heaviest fundamental particle we know of. The two main detectors on the Tevatron were called CDF and DZero, each of which had about 600 collaborators.
