We are allowing scientists to make discoveries and explore unknown parts of the atomic realm. Discoveries will be numerous and exciting.
FRIB has the ability to create many of the same rare isotopes which are presently only available in outer space. These elements typically decay into the elements found on Earth. The isotopes will help increase the knowledge of these elements.
Short-lived atomic nuclei not normally found on Earth
million will go into creating FRIB
staff members are already working
Workers are currently constructing 35 feet below surface level
scientists will travel to the Lansing area to work
billion will be added to the Michigan economy
