The electron–positron storage ring, SPEAR, is now running at SLAC as scheduled, and performance attained so far meets all expectations. Now SLAC, in collaboration with the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (LBL), is looking ahead to a still more powerful colliding‐beam device called “PEP”, a device that would involve collisions between protons, electrons and positrons.
