Rare isotope facility at MSU focus of March Good Morning Livingston


The FRIB under construction.

The largest construction project in Michigan is under way at Michigan State University as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) takes shape. The FRIB will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC), Michigan State University (MSU), and the State of Michigan.

Operated by MSU, FRIB will provide intense beams of rare isotopes (short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth). FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of these rare isotopes in order to better understand the physics of nuclei, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society.

You can learn about the business opportunities associated with this facility at the March 10 Good Morning Livingston Program, set for 7:30-9 a.m. at The Johnson Center at Cleary University, 3750 Cleary Drive in Howell.

To RSVP for the March 10 Good Morning Livingston, contact the chamber at 517.546.3920, e-mail chamber@howell.org, or online at this link. The cost for the breakfast event is $20 for members in advance or $25 at the door, and $30 for non-members.
