New 10.5T magnet delivered to CMRR
December 7-8, 2013 The new 10.5T magnet was delivered to the CMRR this weekend. It was shipped to Duluth via the Great Lakes, then loaded onto a two-truck trailer. The magnet arrived Friday evening, and was unloaded and moved inside the CMRR on Saturday. The 110-ton instrument contains 720 miles of winding, and weighs as much as a railroad locomotive and over twice as much as a Boeing 737 airliner.
