Recently, we have been looking at Particle Accelerator sites around the world. Perhaps 75% of these sites are on major or minor grid lines. A large majority of them are on major grid lines. Some are on multiple grid lines, both major and minor.
We have found that particle accelerators that have relationships to the World Grid can be broken down into two groups. Those that have a grid line going through the center of the accelerator, and those that have a grid line going through the rim of the accelerator. We have selected one example of each type for you to look at.
The first site is Argonne National Laboratory in Argone, Illinois, USA. Here, a 7.5′ grid line goes through the center of the accelerator ring.
The second example is of Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York, USA. Here a 6′ grid line goes through the rim of the accelerator ring.
We hope this information is both interesting and instructive for you.
