Kate McAlpine, the rapper who garnered much notice (including from this site) and millions of YouTube views for her track about the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), is back with a new track on a new subject: rare isotopes.

(Isotopes of an element have the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons and hence different masses.) Among other goals, FRIB hopes to elucidate the nuclear reactions at the cores of stars and the physics of stellar explosions, known as supernovae, that create many of the elements that make up planets and their inhabitants.
