Physics major works on experiment at MSU-NSCL

Cole Persch spent the day working with Dr. DeYoung at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University.  Most of the day we were helping out with SuN, a machine used to study supernovas. I also sat in on a meeting to discuss another experiment.

Congratulations Caitlin Taylor
