Progress Made on ILC Test Area at Fermilab

| 12 January 2006 At Fermilab, the last year was a busy one for the team that gutted out the New Muon and Meson buildings, preparing them to be test areas for the ILC and Proton Driver. Formerly known as the Superconducting Module and Test Facility (SMTF), the renovated space is now called the ILC Test Area (ILCTA -Meson Detector Building and ILCTA-New Muon).
