On November 27, APS brought the star power of 125 APS Fellows to Livermore, for a tour of the National Ignition Facility (NIF), followed by a reception at a nearby winery. Fellows from Livermore Lab (the site of NIF) were joined by busloads from both Berkeley and Stanford. At the reception, in addition to enjoying the food accompanied by some of the local vintages, the Fellows heard from APS President Bob Byer of Stanford, Executive Officer Kate Kirby, Treasurer/Publisher Joe Serene, and Director of Public Affairs Michael Lubell, as well as some words of welcome from NIF Director Edward Moses. In the photo, a subset of the attendees is captured at the entrance to the Ignition Facility. APS President Byer is at far left in the 2nd row.
