CWTP | Supernova in the Lab

Event Description

MSU's National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) is one of the world's leading rare isotope research facilities. How do researchers study atomic nuclei that are too small to see, exist for less than a second and can't be found on Earth? Simply accelerate them to half the speed of light, smash them and then study the pieces. Outreach coordinator Zachary Constan will talk about the impact that the NSCL is having on the scientific community, the world and beyond.
