May 16, 2007 01:25 CEST, first run with full detector started: we are taking data! CERN Courier : Borexino begins data taking at Gran Sasso
2007-05-15 – Inside view of the Borexino detector (camera #1). Borexino filling completed today @ 11:24:55 CEST, SSS full of scintillator!
2007-04-04 – Inside view of Borexino detector (camera #1). Water in SSS (on the bottom) being replaced by scintillator (on top). We’re almost done!On Apr 27, 2007 the filling of the Inner Vessel has been completed.
Inside view of the Borexino detector (camera #1). Water in the SSS (on the bottom) is being replaced by scintillator (on top). About 200t of scintillator in the SSS at this point. Borexino filling goes on…
Borexino “Water Tank” (outer shield) filling has begun.
PC delivery from Sarroch (Sardinia island, Italy) to LNGS has begun.
First batch of scintillator (~11,000 liters) in Borexino!
Another step completed. The Borexino Stainless Steel Sphere have been completely filled with ultra-pure water. Next steps: begin replacing water with buffer liquid and scintillator filling the Water Tank with ultra-pure water (shield)
