Default Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Pix

I work here and started AP in order to get these shots with my Sony U30 2 megapixel with www.rc-cam.com mods.
[link=http://www.pam-rc.org]Look at Picture Gallery[/link]
I am very pleased [sm=sunsmiley.gif] with these results. You see the two mile accelerator building in one shot. Others are various particle physics and synchrotron experimental areas known as End Station A, SLD, Babar, SSRL, etc. more at www.slac.stanford.edu.

Also shown are a few shots of the nearby Rancho San Antonio Park electric flying field of 280 in Cupertino, CA.

The plane is World Models Super Frontier 80 inch span 1200 square inch "heavy lifter". Also still visible at these altitudes. Power is 16 cells, Mega 45-3, SuperBox 2:1, 16x10. Huge climb rate with this small camera.

I believe they accelerate little particles to sub-light speed.... or something really fast like that.[:-]

The accelerator produces electrons and positrons at very high energy for basic research. Currently studying the disappearance of antimatter in fundamental big bang like interactions.

The plane weighs almost 9 mounds with 16X3000 NiMh. Climbs very well - can almost hover.
