WIS Group Tours MCC

By Joni White

On June 2, over 30 people turned out for a special behind-the-scenes tour of the SLAC Main Control Center (MCC). The event was arranged by the Women’s Interchange at SLAC (WIS) and was presented by Kristina Kubler and Zoe Van Hoover (both AD), two of the Engineering Operators in Charge at MCC.

The tour group first enjoyed an illustrated description of what the people in MCC do and then walked around MCC and learned about particular monitors and procedures that keep our accelerator beamlines functioning.

Many thanks go to Van Hoover and Kubler, who gave us a clear and simple explanation of the MCC and its importance at SLAC.
