Photowalk (227/365)


TIME: 11:45 AM
PLACE: Fermilab
SUBJECT: Photowalk

Our last stop was, ironically, where it all begins - The Cockcroft-Walton. The Cockcroft Walton is where every beam starts. Small amounts of Hydrogen gas get hit with 750,000 electron volts which starts the beam on its way. It is one of the oldest technologies on the Fermilab site.
