The water in the canal flows in one direction, perhaps the only circular river in the world. It takes some human effort to make this so.

I am told that the canal never freezes while the beam is on. This is not because of radiation, but because the superconducting magnets need to be cryogenically cooled, and the waste heat is dumped into the earth.

The main FermiLab building is a little easier to see.
