    Tech Tuesday: Smart Phone Origin - Spun From Nuclear Physics!

    Most of us walk around with a smart phone, but I bet it’s news to many that the tools first built to understand the workings of the nucleus of the atom, the same tools used here at Jefferson Lab, became the tools to ultimately create smart phones (and more). Having my smartphone is great; it helps me get through my busy day. It lets me stay in touch with my family, and gives me the ability to me check my email on the go. I can text the dog sitter, take pictures and share them on social media, and so on and so on.
