Today was the last day of the conference, and at about 1pm one of the local guys took us on a tour of SLAC. Formerly called the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, its now just called the SLAC National Accelerator Lab, as they’ve refocused from just the accelerator to doing all sorts of high energy physics stuff.

While he was only able to give us a tour of the computer facilities (the actual physics stuff is behind higher security and they’re revamping their tours at the moment) it was still very cool. Lots and lots of equipment and room.

Most amusing part is a sign at the entrance: “Unique Hazards May Exist.”
