The Lead Radius Experiment ("PREX"), experiment number E06002, uses the parity violating
weak neutral interaction to probe the neutron distribution in a heavy nucleus, namely 208Pb,
thus measuring the RMS neutron radius to 1% accuracy, which has an important impact on nuclear
theory. The experiment is being performed by the HAPPEX collaboration which has recently completed
experiments E99115 & E00114 -- i.e. HAPPEX II and HAPPEX Helium.
