The folks pictured here at the Fermilab village have a reason to cheer up: the glorious Tevatron has just delivered 11 inverse femtobarns of proton-antiproton collisions to CDF and DZERO. What a huge achievement that has been!
I remember when I first joined CDF in 1992: the data we had in our hands back then were 4.1 inverse picobarns of data -little more than a three-thousandth of what has been produced in Run II now. Many of the physicists you can see in the picture above were already there, some of them since ten years before. CDF is the experiment of a lifetime!
