Bye-bye, Tevatron! January 10, 2011

Posted by apetrov in Particle Physics, Physics, Science.

Well, it is now official: DOE has decided not to pursue the extension of the Tevatron running until the year 2013. The operations of the Tevatron, the largest US hadron accelerator,  will end at the end of this year, 2011. The details of the DOE decision can be found here.

To remind you, the original idea to extend the Tevatron running until 2013 came out because of the LHC shutdown schedule (and physics, of course), Tevatron might have been competitive with the LHC in the search for light (~ 120 GeV) Higgs. Now we have to rely solely on the LHC.
