It's Alive!!!

Hey Everyone,
The Pelletron has been charged up to 1,437,000 volts!!!

Great news, we just tried turning on the Pelletron now that the vacuum tube is at vacuum and the tank is full of 60PSI of SF6.  As you can see in the picture, we were able to get it up to about one and half million volts!  It's a little on the noisy side, but it isn't too bad as long as you're a couple of feet away.  We'll start actually conditioning it and do more thorough testing tomorrow and hopefully be up to 3 million volts before the end of the week.
