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.
