For over 40 years SLAC has been probing the fundamental laws of nature. Thanks to the efforts of SLAC's staff, groundbreaking discoveries have been made and many of Nature’s secrets have been revealed. SLAC will celebrate these 40 years with a special event to be held on Wednesday, October 2, 2002.
A tent on The Green will set the stage for this unique day, featuring guests from all over the world. This is an opportunity for the SLAC Community to come together and take stock of what we have achieved over the last 40 years.
