Current Status as of Friday 4th Janaury 2013: All of the ring is now under vacuum and has been baked. The RF cavity has been delivered and installed. Commissioning of the ASTRID2 ring is well underway with currents of around 30-40 mA stored.
By clicking on one of the links below you can view a video showing the construction progress of the ring. There is a short 20 second film which shows the complete construction of the ring from the beginning of 2011, when the ring hall was empty, until the ring was enclosed with a concrete wall in May 2012. The longer films show the daily progress of the construction and have been split into separate files according to year. The film for 2012 was last updated: 15th May 2012. The 2011 film shows the progress of the building of ASTRID2 throughout 2011. Some of the files are quite large.
