2017-02: Chris Wrede research highlighted in MSU Today article

An article published on 18 February 2017 in MSU Today features MSU Physics & Astronomy Assistant Professor Chris Wrede, giving details of some of his research into the generation of nuclear isotopes in stellar explosions, which was the topic of a presentation he made recently at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). He explains how experiments done at the NSCL provide real evidence linking astronomical observations with theoretical and computational models of how heavy nuclei are formed and distributed in nature. Future experiments proposed to be done at the FRIB once it has been constructed will achieve even better insight into such processes.
