Physics

The Cyclotron lab is not really designed to handle radioactive beams, but Briggsium is too weird to ignore. The physicists propose to generate it in a nuclear reaction immediately behind the accelerators, and are trying to see if they can get the beam all the way to the detectors. As an estimate, they assume the beamline to be 177 meters long, and Briggsium to travel down the tube with 0.96 c. In the lab system, how long does it take Briggsium to travel the length of the beamline?

* mean-life = 203.4200 ns
