  • During these events you can also take a walk on the Hill vista trail in the map below to go to the Vista point where you can get a straight view of the two mile linear accelerator, the Research Yard with LCLS beam line and End Station A where the deep inelastic scatter experiment in 1970 discovered the quark/parton inside nucleon. You can also see the old SPEAR ring (now Stanford Syncrhtron Radiation Lab - SSRL) which hosted the e+e- experiment MK-I that discovered charm quark and tau lepton in 1974/1976.
