The first inner detector end-cap, with both the TRT and SCT, was lowered into the cavern.

On 24 May 2007, the first inner detector end-cap, with both the transition radiation tracker (TRT) and the semiconductor tracker (SCT), was lowered into the cavern.

On Thursday, May 24, the first inner detector end-cap, with both the TRT and SCT end-caps, was taken down to the pit. More pictures can be found on the transfer from SR1 to SX1 as well as the lowering into the cavern and reception on the platform which can also be seen as a slide show.
