Clockwise from upper left: Georges Charpak, Johannes C. Sens, Francis Farley, Antonino Zichichi, and Theo Muller celebrate and converse about the first time they saw muons working 1000 turns in the 6m magnet at CERN in October-November 1960. The diagram on the blackboard is an interpretation of their "g-2" experiment on the synchrocyclotron.
