remark by the advocate -- Savini (talk) 04:23, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

As the advocate of the proposed milestone, I have a couple of remarks. I believe that nobody can deny the importance of the FermiLab synchrotron. It was a real milestone in the history of nuclear physics and relevant technology. The proposed citation correctly highlights that it was the first accelerator/collider to use superconducting magnets. Just because of this I wonder whether a more appropriate title might be "Superconducting magnets for the Fermilab accelerator/collider, 1983" . The second part of the citation, by the way, accordingly points out the following applications of superconducting technology. In addition, I have a few other requests of corrections: i) in the title, instead of "1983" to read " 1983-1985" ii) to modify the central part of the first sentence from " the Tevatron achieved over 1 TeV in proton-antiproton collisions" to " the Tevatron achieved energy in excess of 1 Tera electronVolt (TeV) in proton-antiproton collisions". This clarifies the term TeV for the general public. iii) in the last line I prefer the term "technology" instead of "infrastructure".
