Monday at 8 a.m. is the deadline for anybody interested in taking a tour of the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) accelerator at LANL, in conjunction with the Rosenfest Lectures.
The tour is scheduled for Friday, May 20, and it will start at 1 p.m. and end by 5:30 p.m.
Anybody interested in the tour must submit an application at http://rosenfest.lanl.gov/tour_application_form.shtml.
Tour organizer Leilani Conradson said applications only will be accepted from U.S. citizens as the deadline for foreign nationals has already passed.
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.
