The Year of the Periodic Table 2019

The period table is at the heart of everything we do at ANSTO. To celebrate the 150th Anniversary year of the periodic table in 2019, we are going to get down to bare basics and highlight just how we use these many elements every day.

The period table is at the heart of everything we do at ANSTO. To celebrate the 150th Anniversary year of the periodic table, we are going to get down to bare basics and highlight just how we use these many elements every day to deliver better health outcomes, understand our environment and support Australian industries with innovations.

Did you know that because ANSTO has the scientific tools to investigate at the scale of the atom, we can track elements through any system on earth? We even produce elements that can be traced through your body. Below you'll find a different element from the Periodic Table each week and its structure, as well as selected learning resources from ANSTO.

ANSTO XR App

ANSTO is excited to announce its first virtual-reality experience, which provides full access to the OPAL multipurpose reactor.  For security reasons, few people have the opportunity to see the real OPAL up-close—but with technology that will be shared at a select few locations and through a free VR app, you can take a deep dive into Australia’s only nuclear reactor. 

Entering the unseen world of atoms, you will be able to follow three possible journeys of the neutron, an extremely useful subatomic particle produced in the core of the OPAL multipurpose reactor. By splitting uranium atoms to generate trillions of neutrons every second, OPAL makes a range of unique services possible at ANSTO’s Lucas Heights campus.
