Capitol Hill Reception and Exhibits on Plasma Science and Technology On June 17, 1998, the Coalition for Plasma Science held a reception and interactive exhibit for Members of Congress, their staffs, and government agency representatives.
The event was held in Washington, DC in the Foyer of the Rayburn House Office Building. It was designed to teach about plasmas and to point out their many scientific, commercial and practical applications.
The event featured demonstrations, posters, hands-on exhibits and both model and operating plasma devices. The exhibits represented plasmas in space, environment, industry, energy, national security, transportation, education and daily life.
