Description

Scientists at SLAC's Particle Physics and Astrophysics develop and utilize unique instruments from underground to outer space to explore the ultimate laws of nature and the origins of the universe. Searching for answers to fundamental questions about the ultimate structure of matter and the forces between these fundamental particles, scientists use accelerators which speed electrons and anti-electrons to nearly the speed of light, and study their collisions and collisions from fixed target experiments. Using similar technology in astrophysics, space-based detectors will help us understand the birth and evolution of the universe.
