12th October 2002

We went for a free tour at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. It's a big research center for particle physics and it has facilities to accelerate particles at high speeds and for example, to collide electrons and positrons... but I really have no idea how exactly the machines there work. =P. It seems to be for students majoring in Physics actually.

We went in a group of about 20
