Science on Tap - Neutrinos

Join us at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 18
This event is open to attendees of all ages!

The neutrino yesterday and today

Keith Rielage, a neutrino physicist with the Lab's Neutron Science & Technology group, will share a brief tale of the discovery and study of the neutrino. The neutrino was discovered by Los Alamos scientists Fred Reines and Clyde Cowan in 1956. During the last 60 years, the Lab has performed many experiments to determine the properties of this elusive particle.

After the short, initial presentation there will be lively discussion and Q&As until around 7 p.m.

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.
