Science on Tap: What travels at 84% the speed of light and is used by researchers at Los Alamos?

Join us on Thursday, March 16 at 5:30 in Los Alamos at UnQuarked to learn the answer.
This event is open to those of all ages.
In response to requests from our previous Science on Tap attendees, this month’s topic will be LANSCE. That acronym stands for Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. Housed at Los Alamos, it’s one of the most powerful linear accelerators in the country. During this Science on Tap event, Gus Sinnis, both a deputy associate director for Experimental Physical Science and the facility’s user director, will introduce you to the technology that attracts more than 500 researchers here each year. Once on-site, international visitors conduct experiments that support both civilian and national security research.
 
A short, informal presentation will precede discussion, questions, and answers.
 
The event is open to those of all ages.

Science on tap

Science on Tap is a convivial opportunity to engage with Lab scientists on their current projects. A brief presentation is followed by lively questions, answers, and discussion. The fun takes place on the third Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the UnQuarked Wine Room at 145 Central Park Plaza in Los Alamos.

The sessions are a joint project between the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Creative District.
