**SOLD OUT** Obscura Society: Tour of Fermilab
Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (CDT)
Tour of Fermilab
The Tevatron accelerator is an astounding 3.9 miles across with particles colliding at almost two trillion electron volts. Fermilab scientists are using this behemoth to unlock the secrets of asymmetric distribution of matter and antimatter in our observable universe.
The lab also houses artistic takes on a variety of mathematical concepts, including a geodesic dome and a double helix staircase. Oddly enough, there are even a herd of bison that live on the grounds as a way to preserve Illinois' environmental heritage.
OBSCURA DAY TICKETS TO FERMILAB ARE SOLD OUT - HOWEVER, DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND WE HAVE ADDED A SECOND OVERFLOW DATE ON SATURDAY, MAY 19 - TICKET INFORMATION IS BELOW.
Visitors may enter Fermilab through the Pine Street or the Batavia Road entrances.
Roadways that are off limits to visiting members of the public are posted with signs, and motorists will be given site maps to guide them to the public areas.
