J-PARC Open House

- Sunday 29 July 2012 -
  As a special summer event, the Japan Proton Accelerator Research Complex (J-PARC) is pleased to announce our Open House to be held on Sunday, 29 July 2012.

  Anyone and everyone is welcome to come to J-PARC on the 29th of July to see the world-leading facility and learn about the science underway there.

  The Open House is a great opportunity to learn about J-PARC and experience firsthand the infrastructure and facilities that put J-PARC at the leading edge of human endeavor.

  Come along and see the underground accelerator complex that has put Japan at the forefront of science: the awe-inspiring Materials and Life Science Experimental Facility that uses neutron and muon beams to probe the basic structure and properties of matter and the Hadron and Neutrino Experimental Facilities where multinational cutting-edge experiments in elementary particle physics are carried out.

  Visitors are also invited to join in a hands-on science lab where some of JAEA's scientists will guide and instruct you in some of the basic elements of physics, chemistry and materials science. The science labs will be held at the Ibaraki Science Museum of Atomic Energy.

  We look forward to welcoming you to J-PARC!
