Caption: Physicists at work in 1978 on the Mark 2 particle detector (left) at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in California. The detector is like a swiss roll, consisting of many sub-detectors for tracking & identifying particles; it is wrapped around the beam pipe of the SPEAR collider, in which electrons & positrons are accelerated in opposite directions within the pipe until brought to collide head-on at the heart of the detector. The red & green rectangles at right are magnets for focusing the particles; the beam pipe passes through the magnets & then into the hole visible in the detector. The Mark 2 studied the family of charmed particles in the late 1970s & early 1980s.
