Using ISIS, a world-leading particle accelerator and neutron source, to solve many of nature’s more curious problems. What connects cosmic rays, the observation of a 19th Century solar flare, the internet, a Belgian voting machine, aircraft autopilots and a natural ‘rain’ that contains no water? The answer to this question, and how a major facility here at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory is taking up the challenge presented by the answer, will be revealed in this talk by Instrument Scientist, Dr Chris Frost.

It is recommended for those 14+ and there is both a lunchtime lecture at 13:30 and an evening lecture at 19:00.
