Talk On ‘Approximating The r-Process On Earth With Thermonuclear Explosions’ 7 p.m. Today

Dr. Stephen Allen Becker Becker will talk about the process and show the results from nuclear testing of the rapid absorption of neutrons by nuclei (r-process), which occurs naturally in novae and supernovae and artificially in nuclear tests. 
Becker’s talk is 7 p.m. today at the United Church at 2525 Canyon Road in Los Alamos.
Einsteinium and fermium were first synthesized and identified using nuclear explosions, as were many neutron-rich isotopes.
