While most institutes have a day open to the public during the Science Week every April, the High Energy Physics Laboratory (known from the acronym of its Japanese name, KEK), will be hosting a special day on Saturday, Sept. 15. Doors open from 9 am and close at 4:30. Free shuttle buses between the bus center downtown and KEK are available to ferry people back and forth, though you are, of course, welcome to go by private car as well. Buses leave at regular times between 8:40 and 2:30 from the bus center and the return buses from KEK are between 11 am and 5 pm. This is a great time to see some of the high powered equipment used in high energy physics, such as the Tristan accelerator and other mind-boggling equipment.
