Physicists in SLAC control room

SLAC control room. Wide angle view of physicists and technicians in the control room of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), California, USA. In this room, beams of electrons and positrons circulating in opposite directions along the two rings of the PEP-II collider are brought together. Electron-positron collisions produce large quantities of B mesons and their antimatter equivalent, anti- B mesons. For this reason PEP-II is known as the B factory. Differences in the decay rates of B mesons and anti-B mesons may explain why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe. Photographed in 1999

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the intense atmosphere of the control room at SLAC, where physicists and technicians are seen diligently working on groundbreaking research. The wide-angle view showcases a bustling space filled with computer screens, equipment, and individuals engrossed in their tasks. Located at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in California, USA, this control room plays a crucial role in bringing together beams of electrons and positrons circulating in opposite directions along the two rings of the PEP-II collider. It is within these high-energy collisions that large quantities of B mesons and their antimatter counterparts are produced. Known as the B factory due to its specialization in generating these particles, PEP-II holds great significance for particle physics research. Scientists hope that by studying differences in decay rates between B mesons and anti-B mesons, they may uncover clues explaining why there is an imbalance between matter and antimatter in our universe. This photograph was taken back in 1999 when it perfectly captured this pivotal moment at SLAC. With its composition highlighting various elements such as researchers deep into their odyssey of discovery or operators meticulously monitoring controls, it serves as a testament to human ingenuity pushing boundaries within particle physics laboratories like SLAC's collider accelerator facility.
