Slide title: From Quarks to the Cosmos

Slide Image: Using a curving sweep of images to depict the links between matter at the smallest and largest scales. Pictures begin with the Big Bang at the bottom and starts with the smallest scale at the bottom right in the following order and size: Quarks (10^-16m), atoms (10^-10m), the Earth (10^7m), the Sun (10^9m), globular cluster (10^18m), galaxy radius (10^21m), galaxy super cluster (10^24m), Cosmic Microwave Background (10^26m). Two observatory domes and a canopy of stars scattered in the background suggest the unity between astronomy and physics (the latter symbolized by the accelerator).
