Title: Matched Index of Refraction Flow Facility

What's 27 feet long, 10 feet tall and full of mineral oil (3000 gallons' worth)? If you said INL's Matched Index of Refraction facility, give yourself a gold star. Scientists use computers to model thmore »e inner workings of nuclear reactors, and MIR helps validate those models. INL's Hugh McIlroy explains in this video.
