Observing the stuff of stars (and other things)

Join us for convivial discussion on April 21 at 5:30 p.m. at UnQuarked
A lively, short presentation on the what superhot plasmas can teach us about fusion energy.


Observing the stuff of stars (and other things)
Glen Wurden, with the Lab’s Plasma Physics group, will briefly outline the work he’s been doing in conjunction with the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator in Germany. Part of that work has been to design systems to peer into the roiling world of superhot plasmas to test a promising alternative approach to harness fusion energy.

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.
