2467 Notes

It’s hard not to marvel at the crimson glow of 1966 science. 
Before the digital revolution converted complex workspaces into flat-screen monitors and unobtrusive computers, the control rooms of big experiments were the ultimate in analog awesome. Our Alternating Gradient Synchrotron—still accelerating particles here at Brookhaven after 53 years—featured just such an array of custom-built electronics.
Just look at all those knobs, dials, and oscilloscopes.
