By Jennifer Formichelli

The ground breaking ceremony for The Fred Kavli Building at SLAC, the new home of the Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC), will be held on Monday, June 28, at 4 p.m. on the Kavli Building site in front of the Research Office Research Building (ROB).

The ceremony, which will include short talks by Fred Kavli (The Kavli Foundation), Stanford Provost John Etchemendy and SLAC Director Jonathan Dorfan, will be followed by a reception on the ROB patio. Drinks and appetizers will be served.

The SLAC community is invited and encouraged to attend this important milestone in the history of the Laboratory. The building will eventually house around 90 members of KIPAC. It represents an important commitment on the part of SLAC to a new generation of science—bridging the worlds of experimental and theoretical particle astrophysics—in the hope of making new and exciting discoveries in these crucial fields.

KIPAC Director Roger Blandford and Deputy Director Steven Kahn hope that all SLAC staff will join them to celebrate this happy occasion.
