The Tevatron proton-antiproton collider at Fermilab with its centre of mass energy of 1.96 TeV is currently the only source for the production of top quarks. This report reflects the current status of measurements of the top quark pair production cross section and properties performed by the CDF and DØ Collaborations. Utilising datasets of up to two fb −1, these measurements allow Since its discovery in 1995 at the Tevatron 1) , the top quark remains the heaviest known fundamental particle to date. With a mass of 172.6 ± 1.4 GeV/c 2 2), it is considered to be intimately connected with the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking in the Standard Model of elementary particle physics (SM
