Adam Lyon is deputy head of the Scientific Computing Services quadrant and head of the Scientific Data Processing department in the Scientific Computing Division and a member of the Muon g-2 collaboration, where he is in charge of computing and simulations. He was fortunate enough to "ride along" with the Muon g-2 ring for one of the land transport segments and showed off the experiment and apparatus at several outreach events. Abstract:
How do you transport fragile magnet coils several thousand miles that take up nearly five lanes on the highway? Carefully! This talk will be a quick overview (with lots of pictures) of the transport of the Muon g-2 magnet coils from Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, New York to Fermilab. Come hear how the move was performed by land and sea and how the ring attained "Rock Star" status with the public in the process.
