APPARENTLY. they were going to build the LARGEST one at Fermilab, but they would have had to wipe out an entire suburb! (and then something about
considering Texas. but I know that the largest one is in Geneva, Switz. I'm not quite sure how the connection works? sorry.)
but yes, they even give tours. bikers are always biking on the path. it's a very beautiful place.
the town that is is located in (Batavia) actually has the main building (that the Tevatron is in) as part of it's "crest." (meaning, it's on all
of the city signs, police badges, etc.)
as a field trip, I only remember visiting the Bison. we also went to a flight/NASA simulation place. SCI-Tech museum.
MANY museums/theatres/places in downtown Chicago. I was blessed with a nice school system as a kid, I will admit.
as REQUIRED reading in Highschool, we read 1984, Catcher in the Rye, Separate Peace, Hamlet, Brave New World, Romeo & Juliet, Animal Farm, etc. and
DISCUSS how there is a GREAT possibility that THIS COULD BE OUR FUTURE.
now that i'm older, I've met friends from other places, who have said that those books were practically BANNED where they went to school. NONE of
these books (my school's required list.) have been required reading for ANY other school than my own, and possibly a few surrounding cities.
sorry, I got a BIT off topic there. but I just find it kind of interesting.
