Visit the Lab’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider – the only particle collider in the United States. Come see where physicists study what the universe may have looked like in the first few moments after its creation. Attend a science talk about the discovery of the Higgs Boson, participate in hands-on activities, try to stump a physicist, and see the “Phenomenal Physics” show! All activities are on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors 16 and older must bring a photo ID.
With a new era for discovery underway at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), more than 215 scientific users gathered at Brookhaven Lab to talk physics, preparing for future science, increasing diversity, and more at the 2016 RHIC & Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS) Users' Meeting.
Michiko Minty was awarded tenure for her significant contributions in designing, constructing, and operating complex user facilities, as well as her contributions to knowledge related to the purposes of the field of accelerator science.
To celebrate the second anniversary of President Barack Obama's "My Brother's Keeper" initiative, the Brookhaven Lab collaborated with SUNY Old Westbury to bring more than 160 students from New York City and Long Island to the Laboratory on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 for a day of mentorship and engagement in science.
