Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Main Injector particle accelerator. Technicians checking the Main Injector particle accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) near Chicago, USA. They are using an oscilloscope (whose results are seen on the monitor at far left) to check one of the copper RF (radio- frequency) cavities that accelerate subatomic particles using radio waves. The Main Injector accelerates protons and antiprotons before injecting them into Fermilab's most powerful machine, the Tevatron. Part of the beam pipe, along which the subatomic particles travel, is in the bottom right corner. Photographed in 1998. Accelerator operators are DARREN CRAWFORD (right) and CHUCK BROY.
