It might be winter now, but this bench in the Judith A. DeLapa Perennial Garden will be here waiting for visitors once the garden blooms in early spring. The garden features the colors, textures and forms of flowering and nonflowering herbaceous perennials, bulbs and ornamental grasses. Ten island beds totaling 6,500 square feet informally display a multitude of diverse perennials. Because the perennials bloom at different times, the display is ever-changing, starting as early as March and ending in November. Photo by Lisa Mulcrone

"Metamorphosis," by Subrata Lahiri, graces the entrance of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory and the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams. NSCL is a core institution of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics Center for Evolution of the Elements and is the leader of International Research Network for Nuclear Astrophysics. FRIB is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science user facility. FRIB is funded by the DOE-SC, MSU and the State of Michigan. Supporting the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics in DOE-SC, FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes (that is, short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth), nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security and industry.
