Astrophysics & Cosmology
Our best model of particle physics explains only about 5 percent of the universe.
Astrophysicists use a catalog of extended gamma-ray sources spotted by Fermi spacecraft to home in on mysterious properties of deep space.
In a first, researchers measure extremely small and fast changes that occur in plasma when it’s zapped with a laser. Their technique will have applications in astrophysics, medicine and fusion energy.
A team of electrical designers develops specialized microchips for a broad range of scientific applications, including X-ray science and particle physics.
The event attracted 124 participants and explores the successes and challenges of the theory that describes subatomic particles and fundamental forces.
The LSST cryostat, now fully assembled, will keep the camera’s image sensors continuously cooled to minus 150 degrees Fahrenheit for crisp, high-sensitivity views of the night skies.
She’ll direct the future of astrophysics research at SLAC and Stanford for the next five years.
Their work will deepen our understanding of matter in extreme conditions and fundamental particle physics.
By capturing the most energetic light in the sky, the spacecraft continues to teach us about the mysteries of the universe.
This neutrino-watchers season preview will give you the rundown on what to expect to come out of neutrino research in the coming years.
