Science on Tap - Seeing inside Fukushima

  • 20 Apr 2017
  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
  • UnQuarked 145 Central Park Square, Los Alamos, NM

Event Description

This event is open to those of all ages!

In March 2011, a tsunami slammed into the coast of Japan and initiated the meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Radiation levels inside the buildings there are still lethal, but the cleanup needs to proceed. Come and listen to Chris Morris, of the Lab’s Los Alamos Neutron Science Center, talk about how our scientists are using people-friendly particles called muons to help assess the status of the nuclear fuel inside the damaged reactors. Accurate answers to questions about the fuel rods could help reduce recovery efforts by more than a decade and save billions of dollars. Join us for a short, informal presentation, followed by lively discussion.
