Snowdonia, LMS poster, c 1933 Featured 27 Feb 2003 Image

Snowdonia, LMS poster, c 1933

Poster produced for the London Midland & Scottish Railway (LMS) to promote rail travel to Snowdonia in Wales. In 1923 the LMS boasted in its booklet The Wonderland of Wales that Snowdon and the Welsh Highlands are synonymous with scenery of ravishing beauty. Ancient story, sweet murmurs of mountain streams and soul stirring music of peasant people add to the delights of this romantic region as a holiday ground.
Artwork by Charles H Baker, who was born in Ilminster and educated at Berkhamstead School. He was Head of Research at the Huntington Library, California. He painted landscapes in oil and designed posters for LMS

Linear accelerator Featured 27 Feb 2003 Image

Linear accelerator

TESLA accelerator component. Technician in clean room clothing checking a resonator for use in the TESLA (Tera-electron Volt Energy Superconducting Linear Accelerator). This niobium resonator will be cooled to -271 degrees Celsius, 2 degrees above absolute zero, at which temperature it will become a superconductor. A 33 kilometre path of these will accelerate electrons and positrons (anti- electrons) using magnetic fields, colliding them at the path's centre. This will be used to study the nature of matter in the universe. In addition to this, the facility will be able to create X-ray lasers, which will be able to visualise individual atoms. This work is being done at DESY in Germany
