Celebration set for 12 August to honor NSCL accomplishments

On 2 May, FRIB marked the start of user operation as a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) user facility, with a ribbon cutting featuring the U.S. Secretary of Energy. A week later, the first FRIB experiments began, marking the official start of science at FRIB.

At the end of May, the final National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) experiment completed, nearly 40 years after the first NSCL experiment in September 1982.

As NSCL operations conclude and the FRIB science era commences, the laboratory will take a moment to recognize all the contributions that led to successful operation of NSCL as a National Science Foundation (NSF) user facility for four decades.

On 12 August, a celebration of 40 years of science at NSCL will be hosted, including NSF, DOE-SC, users, former students, staff, and faculty. We hope you will be able to join us in person or virtually via a Zoom connection. If you are interested, please complete the registration.
