March 17, 2023 all-day

Michigan State University breaks ground today on a $730 million nuclear science facility that’s funded mainly by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams will increase the university’s potential to find rare isotopes. It is expected to create more than 400 full-time jobs over the next decade, create 5000 construction jobs and pump $1 billion into Michigan’s economy.
