Move of massive magnet begins

The U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory began moving Saturday the 14-ton electromagnetic ring, which is used to help study the properties of subatomic particles, from Upton to the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois, which is better equipped for the ring's use. The ring's four- to five-week trip will be by barge, a more steady method of travel, because the ring can get damaged if it wobbles as much as an eighth of an inch.
