The LHC says goodbye to AMS. Off to space!

from @CERN today departed the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS). After successful tests in the LHC this international superdetector will boldly go beyond the earthly bonds.  It’s journey will take it first to Norway for testing and then to space by way of the Kennedy Space Center.  (The LHC is presently undergoing a retool for higher power collisions and experiments to come.)
