Particle Accelerator Tour At Wilson Synchrotron Lab

The Robert Wilson synchrotron Lab at Cornell has again opened its doors to us on July 25th at 5:45pm, thanks to our fellow IC member Kiran. Some of Kiran’s colleagues will be giving us a tour of the particle accelerator for FREE.  We will have an attendance cap of 30 with a limit of 2 guests per a member.
Parking: park in the lot on "Synchrotron Dr." which is the northernmost terminus of Pine Tree Rd (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Synchrotron+Drive,+Ithaca,+NY&aq=0&oq=synchrotron+dr&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=47.349227,72.949219&vpsrc=...)
We will meet in the "eXploration station", a modular building along the sidewalk to Wilson Laboratory. A colorful wind generator is across the sidewalk from where we'll be entering. At least two of the physicist team will be waiting for us there.
Here is a good starting point for some background on what they do at the Wilson Lab http://www.chess.cornell.edu/ and http://www.lepp.cornell.edu. This is a real treat, so please RSVP if you are interested.

    Kiran,
    Thank you for all of the work that you have put into this. I am very disappointed that I have to bow out at the last minute because of car issues that were supposed to be rectified today, and now, it's "maybe tomorrow. My apologies for this late pimp out. Have fun everyone.

      Sure, but just one person please, we are already overbooked.

    I'm a little confused, can we bring a guest? It sounds like 33 is the limit and people are waiting yet the description says 2 guests allowed.

      Eileen, 30 (now 33) was the absolute limit, including guests. We will break up the group into 2 batches. about 15 each. I would say, if your guests are already signed up, they would certainly be able to come, if you have just one guest (who is not signed up) it should be OK to bring this person along.

    Thanks Kiran for organizing this tour. I would like to know if we are still bringing guests with us or that is no longer an option.

    Dear All,
    Since we had just members 3 wait listed, I increased the cap to 33 so that all of you can attend. It will be hard to accommodate more though. Thanks for your interest and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

      There is first a brief video, followed by the tour, it may end at around 6:50 - 7:00. Some folks stay over a little longer to ask questions.

    Hello fellow IC members, the particle accelerator tour is this Thursday. This is the third year we are organizing this event, and continue to be over booked! There are 4 members wait listed. I will find out if we can accomodate everybody who signed up. But in the meantime, if you are sure that you will not be able to attend this event, please change your RSVP so that those wait listed can be confirmed. Feel free to visit the links provided in the event posting for background information about the facility. Your wecome to take pictures. We would encourage you to ask questions, and besides, we are very interested in your feedback, that you may provide after the event via the meetup website. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our tours, so any feed back will be helpful. Lastly, thanks to Mitch Raymond for helping in organizing this. I look forward to seening you all on the 25th.

    Since I am a host, I decided to remove my name from the list of attendees so that somebody else can take my place. We are already full! I will be there for the tour.

    • Mitch R.

      I believe you are looking at the month of June Tanis. Look to the month of July and you will see that the 25th is indeed a Thursday.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
