Beats doing it outside of a lab.

/ the TRIUMF laboratory -- now there's a band I haven't heard mentioned in quite a while.

I had a summer job at TRIUMF many years ago, but I was on the muon beamline. No new elements, just heavy electrons doing gyromagnetic stuff.

I toured Fermilab when the beam was off so we got to see the ring. Our guide pointed to some newer cinder blocks on the wall.

"The beam got away from us once."

Apparently, the magnets got out of sync somehow and the particles took out a section of wall.
