Aerial view of the Zero Gradient Proton Synchrotron (ZGS), the $47,000,000 atom smasher under construction at Argonne National Laboratory. When completed in 1963, the device is expected to produce more fundamental nuclear particles than any other machine of its type in the world. Large experimental areas are being constructed around the doughnut-shaped accelerator in which scientists will study beams of particles deflected from the ring-magnet region.
