A beam of particles is a very useful tool. It can diagnose a disease, destroy a tumor, improve a chip, clean up dirty drinking water, scan containers for suspicious content and do much more. In this video, Fermilab’s Sam Posen talks about accelerator research at Fermilab, a world leader in particle accelerator science and technology.

Fermilab and Argonne National Laboratory are co-hosting the 2018 Midwest Regional Accelerating Stewardship Workshop from Dec. 5-6. The Fermilab part of the workshop takes place on Dec. 5 at the IARC building. Workshop details are online:
