Caption: View of the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) accelerator at the Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, New York, in 1960. The AGS accelerator started operations in July 1960, when it accelerated protons to an energy of 24 GeV. The AGS is the ring at the right. The magnets guide the protons on their circular path. The photo shows the point at which the protons enter the AGS. The protons originate in a Cockroft-Walton generator & are then accelerated to 50 MeV in a linear accelerator, or linac, before being injected into the AGS. The linac is behind the shielding wall at rear left. The protons enter the AGS through the beam pipe at lower right.
