Slice of life: A scientific mind
BATAVIA – Fermilab engineer physicist Fernanda Garcia gently brought down the copper pipe that is part of the powerful linear accelerator at Fermilab.
On Tuesday, Garcia and others worked swiftly, yet carefully, to replace a tube in the accelerator, which provides the beam for high-energy physics research and neutron radiation therapy.
“Without a new tube, the beam would just stop working,” Garcia said. “It’s just like your Christmas tree lights. If one stops working, they all stop working.”
