Levitation

Levitation
In the wake of the 1970 Sterling Hall bombing that was targeted at the Army Mathematics Research Center housed in one part of Sterling Hall, AMRC moved to another building on the UW campus not long after -- the appropriately isolated and fortress-like Wisconsin Alumni Research Center building shown here. Demonstrations continued for several years (eventually, AMRC moved to Cornell in 1985), and at one of the demonstrations protesters attempted to levitate the building -- as had been attempted, without success, at the Pentagon earlier. The day I took this photo, nearly four decades later, it briefly looked as if they had succeeded after all.

LSD is a helluva drug.
