What can we learn from 1970’s Big Science?
Collaborating Remotely The 1970's The world of big science in the 1970’s faced a challenge. Scientists knew that they would need ever larger and more powerful particle accelerators in order to explore the fundamental nature of the universe. Yet how to enable research teams around the globe to get access to these new, billion dollar machines? And how to run experiments collaboratively when the scientists were spread across the globe and across time-zones? The history of how sc
