No more Tevatron after September

Sayeth the Trib. I'm too lazy to look very hard for a press release.

All one or two of my readers who know what the Tevatron is are probably kind of sad.

The large hard-on collider will eat its soul. I shall have a moment of silence. Tevatron was the core of Fermilab's research. I suppose they could migrate some folks to Argonne.

And if anyone wonders why, just read the first comment on that story. Too many Americans don't give a rip about science anymore. Ever since the Reagan devolution 30 years ago, any science without clear military applications has been doomed. (Note: I did not write the second comment there, though I agree with it.)

On the other hand, we knew this day would come, though I was hoping it would be when the U.S. finished the super collider in Texas (R.I.P.).

Bonjour Jennifer,

Not sad at all. Our LHC at the Swiss border is working fine. What about applying for a job there. Give it a try.
