The Clear Science staff has been busy with science lately. We just returned from Brookhaven National Lab in Upton, New York. There we were doing X-Ray experiments at the NSLS or National Synchrotron Light Source (marked as 10 above). Around Brookhaven you just call that the light source. So if you get on a shuttle bus, you tell the driver "light source, please."
