November Revolution in Physics
The world of physics was dazzled in November 1974 when two separate experiments at SLAC and at Brookhaven independently discovered the first of a new set of particle states, the J/Psi particle.
The SLAC experiment was SLAC-SP-017 at SPEAR, which generated 42 publications. Burton Richter, of the SLAC-LBL collaboration, and Sam Ting, of the Brookhaven group, received the 1976 Nobel Prize in Physics "for their pioneering work in the discovery of a heavy elementary particle of a new kind."
