Proton elastic and inelastic scattering to the first excited state of 6He have been measured over a wide angular range using a 40.9 A MeV 6He beam. The data have been analyzed with a fully microscopic model of proton-nucleus scattering using 6He wave functions generated from large space shell model calculations. The inelastic scattering data show a remarkable sensitivity to the halo structure of 6He.
