Preparation for Stanford

My name is Aaron Sanders, a junior, history major, and AFROTC cadet at the University of South Carolina. I'm working with Dr. Gwara and Carl on the Breslauer Bible project. Things are definitely speeding up!

Carl and I recently found out that instead of traveling to Stanford in June, as we originally planned, we will now be flying out March 19. Therefore, Carl and I have both created accounts on the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) website, and will begin taking the five online training courses required to use Stanford's facilities. We are hoping to use SLAC's synchrotron to read the erased inscription in the Breslauer Bible, using similar methods to those used for reading the original text of the Archimedes Palimpsest.
