On June 30th, 2007, HERA was finally shut down after 16 years of magnificent operations. Still, the legacy of HERA will continue well into the next decade as the data analysis continues.
There are two articles paying tribute to HERA in this month's issue of CERN Courier. The first covers the construction of HERA, the world's only electron (or positron)-proton collider. The second offers a review of results from HERA that have now become textbook knowledge.
This accelerator/collider that could will not be forgotten.
