Behind-the-Scenes Technical Tour: Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) & the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) Tour at Michigan State University

December 15, 2017 @ 1:45 pm - 4:00 pm

Friday, December 15, 2017

Explore a world-class rare isotope laboratory where nuclei are smashed into a target at half the speed of light! Our tour includes demonstrations, an introduction to the goals and methods of nuclear science, and a walk behind the scenes where nuclei are accelerated, filtered and/or studied. The secrets we learn could help explain what happens in supernovae and the origins of elements that make up the human body.
