It's that time of the year again when Brookhaven National Lab opens its doors to the public in a series of Summer Sunday Tours. If you are or will be in the NYC/Long Island area, I highly recommend you make an effort to visit them during one of their scheduled tours. http://www.bnl.gov/bnlweb/pubaf/pr/PR_display.asp?prID=05-64 You get to see the amazing facilities that have produced a series of landmark discoveries and a few Nobel Prizes along the way. Includes in the open tours are the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) - check the schedule. If you do go for the NSLS open house tour, wave at the facility located at Beamline U13. I spent 2 1/2 memorable years working at that facility. Zz.
