The inauguration of the long-awaited Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB),  a user facility for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, is Monday, May 2nd. This facility was in discussion and planning for three decades. FRIB will allow researchers to explore the limits of the nuclear force and the origins of the heavy elements in particular.

Freimann Professor of Physics Ani Aprahamian was been quoted in Nature, saying that this facility is the "realization of a dream of the whole community in nuclear physics". https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-022-00711-5

Aprahamian chaired the first program advisory committee that selected the very first experiments that would be run at FRIB. U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm and MSU President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D., have invited guests to the event that will set the stage for beginning FRIB’s scientific mission.
