Pi: Seeing Into the Invisible

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

What’s the link between a particle accelerator and an iceberg lettuce? You can find both of them in a salad bowl. Find out how, and discover other amazing science including how we use light to determine the atomic structure of materials and how infra-red can improve medical diagnosis with specialists from the STFC Daresbury Laboratory. Plus take a virtual tour of VELA, one of the fastest pulsing particle accelerators in the world.
