RHIC Engineering Run: June 1999 - August 1999
- Beam has been injected, captured, and stored with lifetimes as long as 45 minutes.
- A modest amount of acceleration has been achieved (~ 1 GeV/A).
- A number of obstacles in the beam pipe have been identified.
- Beam has been injected and captured, and a few thousand turns where observed briefly.
- Steering through the yellow dump area was much more difficult than with the blue ring.
- Large losses observed during the first turn.
