From our friends at TRIUMF
Unveiling the Universe lecture
"We are made of star stuff" with Dr. Reiner Kruecken
6:00-8:30pm on Tuesday, Feb 13 @ Science World
Vancouver is home to one of the few facilities in the world capable of producing and studying these short-lived particles: TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre. And, as part of TRIUMF’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2018, this inaugural Unveiling the Universe lecture will summarize our current knowledge, the lab’s ongoing research, and the burning, yet-unanswered questions regarding the creation of elements in our universe.
Discover how TRIUMF has evolved over its 50-year history, from corralling stellar explosions to tuning into neutron-star collisions, to become a Canadian pioneer in studying the atomic nuclei and galactic events that give rise to the stardust we are all made of.
