We just learned about a new Thorium experiment, the first one in the Southern hemisphere! At CSIRO/Griffith University, researchers are currently transforming an already existing Yb ion trap to a Th ion trap. What a brilliant idea! The experiment is based in Brisbane (that’s in the South East corner of Queensland), so if you happen do be around or would like to learn more about the experiment, contact Stephen Gensemer or Marcin Piotrowski directly. In a few years’ time, we will have Th nuclear clocks running on all continents to measure how Earth moves through clouds of Dark Matter. 🙂 So you folks better hurry up with your experiment!
