Installation of MRI magnet for Project 8 in PAB 037

Santa Claus delivered a heavy superconducting magnet for the Project 8 experiment in middle of December. The magnet had been removed from a medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system earlier in 2018. A multidisciplinary team of riggers (Omega Morgan and Philips), engineers (KEI Medical Imaging Services) and physicists (M. Fertl, UW) steered the 6500 lbs. magnet into the UW physics and astronomy building.
