At Brookhaven National Laboratory, scientists have developed a custom-built machine that can grow special lenses, one atomic layer at a time. The machine is as long as an entire room, and scientists use a reprogrammed Xbox controller to direct a transport car through the vacuum-sealed chamber (pictured). The transport car collects plasma-borne particles that form the lenses that will eventually be used to focus high-intensity x-ray beams to reveal the details of nano material structures. <a href="" target="_blank">Learn more about the deposition chamber</a>. | Photo courtesy of Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Open Space Stewardship Program 2013 Celebration

Students in grades K through 12 are involved in authentic environmental research on properties in their own communities, fostering a sense of ownership and responsibility for open space within their neighborhoods. Each June students and teachers who participated in OSSP are invited to BNL for an OSSP evening celebration at which students display and present their work to teachers, parents, scientists and others in the environmental community.
