MOL, December 2018 – The Flemish news outlet VRT NWS visited SCK•CEN to interview Hamid Aït Abderrahim, the director of project MYRRHA.
MYRRHA is the name of a unique nuclear reactor – powered by a particle accelerator, cooled by led-bismuth, and developed by SCK•CEN. The journalists enjoyed a tour of our facilities and were enthused by our most ambitious goal: reducing the half-life of radioisotopes by a factor of 1,000. You can enjoy their report (in Dutch) here.
Escape room SCK•CEN major success at Sound of Science
On 24 and 25 May, the second edition of Sound of Science took place. SCK•CEN joined the event with an intricate escape room. More than 100 visitors tried to escape the laboratory of Professor X. This lab had been set up in Fort 4, the venue for the festival. No less than 3500 adults and children came to Mortsel and attended Flanders' only science festival.
