The Standard Model of particle physics didn’t begin as a table. The grand theory of almost everything actually represents a collection of several mathematical models that proved to be timeless interpretations of the laws of physics.
The Standard Model is far more than elementary particles arranged in a table.

After completing its final run, scientists on the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment announced they have found no trace of dark matter particles.
In its final run, the LUX experiment increased its sensitivity four-fold, but dark matter remains elusive.

Scientists from Stanford and SLAC are using powerful X-rays to study high-performance mirror coatings that could help make the LIGO gravitational wave observatory 10 times more sensitive to cosmic events that ripple space-time.
The Goal is to Develop High-tech Coatings that Make Detector’s Mirrors Less ‘Noisy’

The INSPIRE database allows scientists to search for published papers by topic, author, scholarly journal, what previous papers the authors cited and which newer papers have used it as a reference.
The first website to be hosted in the US has grown to be an invaluable hub for open science.

The endeavor has turned a novel tabletop laser – one that produces extreme ultraviolet light at unprecedented energies and pulse rates for studies of complex materials – into a commercial product.

SLAC is home to the world's longest linear accelerator, which is nearly 2-miles-long.
What’s the difference between a synchrotron and a cyclotron, anyway?

Story
Tagline
SLAC researchers and facilities explore the frontier questions of science.
Introduction
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is one of the 10 Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science national laboratories and is operated by Stanford University on behalf of the DOE. Since its opening in 1962, SLAC has been helping create the future. We've built the world’s longest particle accelerator, discovered fundamental building blocks of matter and lead countless experiments to test and explore the physical nature of the universe.
