Isaac Hammond: ATLAS Project, Research Log, #104. Lieutenant Marcs and I have begun calibrating the ion beam accelerator. We've hit a plateau at the 300 MeV threshold. Micro-variations in the magnetic flux are disrupting the Betatron induction loop. The Lieutenant is working on a firmware update for the coil controller. She said she'll have the 'wobble' out by Monday. Assembly of the main device remains on schedule. The Air Force is nothing if not punctual.
Colonel Oberlin is still pressing for the facility to be fully operational before the end of the year. As much as I want to see my research in action, we need to proceed carefully. If this goes wrong, the results could be catastrophic. ATLAS has the potential to change the world. Or destroy it.
