As part of the opening of the new Research Support Building, SLAC's Archives and History Office is currently displaying a photo exhibition called "SLAC Perspectives: Then and Now." These photos, taken from the new exhibit, give a glimpse of SLAC's construction and early years.
Every day at SLAC, scientists from all over the world focus their minds – and some of the most advanced scientific technologies – on the biggest challenges of our day. We’re excited to introduce new ways for you to keep up with our lab's latest scientific breakthroughs, from designing better drugs to exploring the origins of the universe.
