First operated in 1982, the National Synchrotron Light Source has accommodated more than 18,400 unique users in its lifetime as a Department of Energy user facility. After 32 years of distinguished operations, NSLS will shut down on September 30, 2014. Replacing it is NSLS-II, which, when fully built out, will accommodate 60-70 beamlines and host over 4,000 users every year. On September 30, witness NSLS "Last Light," when the facility will shut down for the last time.
Please RSVP, as space is limited in the building's lobby, upstairs balcony and seminar room, where viewers can watch large screens showing a webcast of operators shutting down the accelerator, which will start at approximately 4 p.m. and conclude at 4:30 p.m. A celebration BBQ is planned at 5:30 p.m., sponsored by the Users' Executive Committee and the Photon Sciences Directorate.
Registered attendees are invited to attend a celebration BBQ, sponsored by the Users' Executive Committee and the Photon Sciences Directorate.
