Meet ISOLDE Live: Celebrate 50 years of physics at ISOLDE

On this day 50 years ago, the beams at ISOLDE were turned on, and the experiment began taking physics data. Today, that experiment has grown into a facility that provides beams for more than 50 experiments and over 500 scientists. The research done at ISOLDE has helped us to build better, faster computers, taught us more about the stars, and is helping medical researchers improve radiation treatment, for cancer. 

Find out more about ISOLDE in our series, Meet ISOLDE, and join us on Facebook at 14:00 today, Monday 16 October 2017, live from the ISOLDE control centre for a chance to have your questions answered by our scientists.
