Science on Tap set for Monday

-A A +A

Join the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Creative District for Science On Tap Monday at 5:30 p.m. Monday at UnQuarked Wine Room.

This On Tap will feature a conservation conversation with Dr. Sven Vogel about the Ram’s Horn wire gold specimen and DAHRT capabilities at the Lab.

Recently, researchers at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) had the unique opportunity to peer inside the

Ram’s Horn, one of the world’s most amazing and secretive specimens of wire gold.

A National User Facility supporting the lab through critical research on nuclear weapons performance, reliability and safety, LANSCE capabilities include unique characterization techniques for materials analysis.

Thanks to these mission-critical capabilities, Vogel of the lab’s Materials Science in Radiation and Dynamics Extremes group learned some surprising information about the Ram’s Horn specimen, including the fact that’s it’s actually only about 70% gold.

To learn more about research on the Ram’s Horn join the On Tap conversation at UnQuarked.
