The Von Kármán Lecture Series: Atom Lab Celebrating Four Years of Quantum Science in Space

The Cold Atom Lab, NASA’s first quantum science laboratory in space, will mark four years onboard the International Space Station on Aug. 4, 2022. It has already achieved its main science goals by cooling atoms down to ultra-cold temperatures to study their basic physical properties in ways that would not be possible on Earth. Join us for this exciting event and learn from some of the world’s experts – from astronauts to Nobel Laureates – on the details of getting the unique Cold Atom Lab up and running, as well as the progress toward using microgravity to illuminate new features of the quantum world.
