The Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) for the first time successfully accelerated a beam of protons, through phase transition, first to 24 Bev and then to more than 30 Bev, thus attaining full design energies. Shown here is the scene in the AGS control room at the time the intial beam was achieved. Directly in front of the oscilloscope is Dr. G. K. Green, Chairman of the Accelerator Development Department, Brookhaven National Laboratory.
