Abstract.

The BLAST experiment is beginning operation at the MIT-Bates Linear Accelerator Laboratory. The experiment will study the spin dependent electro-magnetic interaction in few nucleon systems at momentum transfers between 0.1 and 1.0 GeV2. This will provide improved measurements of the nucleon form factors, particularly G E n , as well as study the structure of D and 3He. Other reaction channels such as pion production and inclusive scattering will also be studied. The experiment, physics goals, and current status are described briefly.
