  abstract     = {The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) is being designed and established by Michigan State University as a DOE Office of Science (DOE-SC) scientific user facility supporting the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics in DOE-SC. Over 90% complete, FRIB will enable world-leading research opportunities with rare isotopes in nuclear physics, nuclear chemistry, and the application of rare isotopes for society. FRIB is centered on a superconducting radio-frequency linear accelerator, operating at 2 K and capable of delivering 400 kW of beam power, and a fragment separator consisting of superconducting magnets capable of selecting and identifying 1 in 10¹⁸ rare isotopes. This presentation reviews the physics motivation for FRIB, the project’s status, the major technical challenges, and some of the strategic choices supporting delivery of the project baseline with a high likelihood of success.},
