This week we learned that the new appropriations bill drafted in the U-S Senate includes $55-million to continue the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) project at Michigan State University. The project will feature a large particle collider that smashes subatomic matter together to create elements that scientists say are the building blocks of the universe as we know it.

Late last week, MSU’s Facility for Rare Isotope Beams received several critical approvals from U. S. Department of Energy.
