I posted this on the general forum, because this is huge. It's not just a coup for MSU and Lansing, but for the entire state of Michigan. There are apparently only three other facilities like this in the world, and the only one in the United States. Amongst all of the bad news, this is simply awesome to here. We're talking braggning rights, and huge amounts of research money and attracting high-level engineers and researchers.

MSU to become home to $550 million nuclear physics facility

Marisa Schultz / The Detroit News

Michigan State University will be home to a $550 million federal nuclear physics facility, beating out a prestigious national laboratory for the one-of-a-kind project that promises to boost the state's economy and the university's prestige.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced today that MSU is its choice for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, or FRIB, the biggest nuclear physics upgrade ever at the university and one that will solidify its spot as a world leader in rare isotope research, leaders say.
