In June 1978 approval was given for the construction of an antiproton production and storage facility, the AA complex, and for the modification of the SPS to be able to inject, accelerate, and store bunches of 270-GeV protons and antiprotons with collisions in the center of two large experimental detectors. Two years later, after the construction of the necessary equipment and preparatory excavation of the two underground zones, the SPS fixed target operation was interrupted for nearly 12… CONTINUE READING
