ANSTO 60 Years is a free app that celebrates 60 years of research and discovery at the Australian Nuclear Science and Research Organisation (ANSTO). This exhilarating app is presented by the multi-award-winning science title, COSMOS Magazine.
ANSTO 60 Years tells the ANSTO story from its historic beginnings to the facility today, explaining nuclear science in a compelling and clear manner, and focussing on the cutting-edge research being done globally and nationally using ANSTO’s facilities, particularly at the world-class Bragg Institute.
This iPad commemorative app takes the reader on a journey of discovery, providing readers with an insight into the beginnings of nuclear science in Australia, to the top end research faculties currently used in nuclear research, including OPAL and the neutron beam instruments, the Australian Synchrotron and particle accelerator science.
Building on COSMOS’ most engaging and successful content, ANSTO 60 Years is highly interactive, visually lush and boldly science oriented. It explains how the reactor creates a neutron beam using interactive animations and video walkthroughs and describes the cutting edge of scientific knowledge, using all the extraordinary interactivity made possible by the iPad.
Intuitive to use and touchable, ANSTO 60 Years combines slideshows, animation, maps, graphics and video, making you want to explore at deeper and deeper levels.
It’s an app that will let scientists, researchers, professionals, students, families and schools access cutting-edge science presented with depth, clarity and a touch of magic.
