The atomic nucleus truly sits at the intersection of chemistry and physics - over the decades both scientific fields have laid claim to these uniquely mysterious quantum systems. I will talk in this presentation about the current state-of-the-art in nuclear science, including the new Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, which is opening a new era for studies of the nucleus. I’ll also discuss what we are learning each day to advance our understanding of nuclei across the Segre chart, and through these studies, our knowledge of the origin of the elements and isotopes we find on Earth and across the cosmos.
