The Quark Discovery
Fifty years have passed since the publication of two articles in Physical Review Letters on October 20, 1969 [ 1, 2 ]. These articles marked the discovery of the quark and led to the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physics for Jerome Friedman, Henry Kendall and Richard Taylor.
The symposium features presentations by theorists and experimentalists that were intimately involved in this exciting breakthrough.
Here is a simple 3 minute introduction to the experiment in 1969 by SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
