Caption: View of the '80-inch' (200 cm) liquid hydrogen bubble chamber at the Brookhaven National Laborat- ory on Long Island, New York. The man is servicing one of the 3 automatic cameras that photographed tracks in the chamber. The whole assembly stood 7.2 metres tall & weighed 450 tonnes, but it could be moved up & down & rotated on a turntable. Commissioned in 1963, the 80- inch photographed the interactions of particles produced in the AGS (Alternating Gradient Synchrotron) accelerator. It made numerous discoveries in the 1960s, notably the discovery of the omega minus particle in 1964. Photo taken 1964
