Saturday Morning Physics | Bringing the Stars Down to Earth with the Most Powerful Particle Accelerator in the World

Artemis Spyrou, Associate Professor (Michigan State University Physics - National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory)
Saturday, October 20, 2018
10:30-11:30 AM
170 & 182 Weiser Hall Map
We also celebrate the James Robert Walker Memorial Lecture on this date.

The elements we see around us are all forged in the glowing fires of stars. Nuclear energy and nuclear reactions are driving these fires, and the only way to ever understand how they work is by producing the relevant nuclei here on Earth and studying their properties. For this reason, among others, the most powerful particle accelerator in the world, FRIB, is currently under construction in the heart of Michigan. When built, FRIB will finally give us unique access to those nuclei that are responsible for building the whole Universe.
