A Dec. 22, 2005, photo provided by Brookhaven National Laboratory shows the 50-foot-wide electromagnet storage ring at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, N.Y., on eastern Long Island. The ring, which will capture subatomic particles that live only 2.2 millionths of a second, will be transported in one piece, and moved flat, to its new home at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois. The trip is expected to take more than a month. (AP Photo/Brookhaven National Laboratory)
