Abstract: Transformative innovations in the science and technology of personalized medicine, energy storage, and clean growth start from achieving atomic and molecular understanding, and then control, of the fundamental (bio)-chemical interactions that determine each process. To generate the required level of understanding and control, the UK is currently investing in the design of a new national facility centered on the unique measurement capabilities offered by relativistic ultrafast electron diffraction and imaging (RUEDI). The underlying science and technology for RUEDI – ultrafast measurements and electron diffraction/imaging - are areas where John Spence made seminal contributions over the course of his career, and his work in these areas continues to guide the development of the science program for this new facility. Should RUEDI be successful in its goals, it will permit the direct observation of atomic/electronic motions directing the very chemistry we must control for the advances listed above.
