Last week 16 prototype calorimeters were shipped to Brookhaven National Lab.  They were built and machined at the NPL.  At Brookhaven they will be outfitted with lightguides and electronics and then will be tested in a beam at Fermilab in January.  These are prototypes for the sPHENIX Experiment which is a large new experiment being built at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven.  We look forward to taking data with these calorimeters soon.
