The Laboratory was founded on the science of nuclear reactions—work it continues today.
At this month’s Science On Tap, Shea Mosby, with the Lab’s Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), will talk about how a better understanding of nuclear reactions on radioactive materials is progressing using instruments such as the Detector for Advanced Neutron Capture Experiments (DANCE) and Apollo.
This work is allowing scientists to make predictions about how neutrons behave with more accuracy than ever before possible whether you’re talking about weapons, power plants, or stars. Come on over and find out how they DANCE at LANSCE!
Science On Tap happens every third Thursday of the month, featuring a new topic each time. Join us at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 19. Science On Tap is at UnQuarked Wine Room, 145 Central Park Square.
Science On Tap is sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District and hosted by the Bradbury Science Museum. The On Tap series begins each evening with an informal 10-15 minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion. All ages are welcome! On Tap is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests. The “On Tap” series happens twice a month. The discussions are supported by Bradbury Science Museum, Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos Historical Society and PEEC at The Nature Center.
The Los Alamos Creative District is a program of Los Alamos Commerce & Development Corporation, a private, not-for-profit economic and community development organization serving the Los Alamos area since 1983. LACDC serves as the umbrella organization for the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce, Los Alamos MainStreet, the Los Alamos Meeting & Visitors Bureau, Los Alamos Small Business Center and the Los Alamos Research Park.
