Electromagnetic particle ring passes through Kentucky Lock on circuitous journey
The 50-foot electromagnetic particle ring, Muon g-2 (pronounced g minus two) is lowered in Kentucky Lock, Grand Rivers, Ky., July 16, 2013 on its circuitous journey from Long Island, N.Y. to Chicago. It is a very powerful electromagnetic ring capable of carrying 5,200 amps of current and it creates a very strong magnetic field that allows storing a special particle called a muon. For additional information on the Muon g-2, and how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District contributed to its journey, go to http://www.npr.org/2013/07/02/197719271/15-ton-particle-ring-travels-to-chicago-by-land-and-by-sea>.
