Katrin’s roundabout journey


After the leak tests the tank was ready to be shipped. There is a slight problem of transportability from Deggendorf to Karlsruhe: The tank is too big for motorways, and the canal between the rivers Rhine and Danube has to be ruled out, too. Thus, instead of a journey of about 400 km, the spectrometer has to travel nearly 9000 km as indicated in the map.

So says the Katrin [KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino experiment] project’s web page. There are photos and video of some of the action.

(Thanks to Tingilinde for bringing this to our attention.)
