Description: 

Unidentified physicist readies a piece of plastic which will be bombarded by billion volt protons in the Cosmotron at Brookhave National Laboratory, Upton, New York. When the rectangular slab is moved tightly against the rectangular groove, air is pumped out of the small chamber. An Operator in the control room (not shown) can then set automatic equipment which, after the Cosmotron is started up, will push the target into the path of the protons as they circulate in the vacuum chamber (left). Fragments of the nuclei of target atoms which then fly out are trapped in research equipment (not shown) in studies of the structure and properties of the atomic nucleus.
