82 Notes

It’s tough to identify the real star of this photo. The Cockroft-Walton Accelerator—essentially a multi-level voltage multiplier—is certainly a striking piece of machinery. Starting in the 1960s, that curvaceous beauty provided the initial boost to protons before they raced on into the rings of our groundbreaking Alternating Gradient Synchrotron.But what about the scientists and engineers casually crushing it in 1988?

    I think that is one corner of a facility that is one enormous lab

    Oh my gosh this is beautiful. You just want to pet it… (Also, though, what is this?! You call this a lab?! I count three...
