Members of the public will have an opportunity to tour the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center from 1 to 5 p.m. on Friday, May 20, as part of Rosenfest, a celebration of LANSCE founder Louis Rosen and the facility he conceived. In addition, Rosenfest organizers are offering a special tour time-slot for teachers and students beginning at 3:30 p.m. to accommodate school schedules.
LANSCE is Los Alamos National Laboratory’s signature science facility. At LANSCE, a stream of protons (hydrogen ions) are accelerated to nearly the speed of light in a linear accelerator. The protons are then used for a variety of applications, from national-security science, to health and materials science, to fundamental research that helps provides a better understanding of physical processes or the workings of the universe.
“LANSCE has always been a cornerstone of scientific research, and it will continue in that capacity in the future as the basis for MaRIE, the Laboratory’s planned next-generation facility that will enable researchers to understand and control the behavior of matter in extreme environments,” said Alan Hurd, director of the Lujan Neutron Scattering Center at LANSCE and chair of Rosenfest. “This is a rare opportunity for the public to learn firsthand about the facility’s proud past and promising future.”
