June 2014: Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA) renewed
On 30 June 2014, Professor Hendrik Schatz, director of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA), a NSF physics frontiers center, received news that it would be continued for another five years. In this phase of the program, JINA will strive to understand the evolution of the elements in the universe. The lead organization in this renewal is MSU, with Notre Dame and U. Chicago as participating units. These centers are amongst the most prized and prestigious centers funded by the NSF and accolades should go to Hendrik Schatz and his team for this success.
