Astrophysics & Cosmology
In its final run, the LUX experiment increased its sensitivity four-fold, but dark matter remains elusive.
The goal: Develop high-tech coatings that make the detector’s mirrors less “noisy”.
Before Hitomi died, it sent back X-ray data that explain how turbulent motions may prevent cooling of hot gas.
Computer models predict how the first clumps of matter formed – and what our universe's future holds.
A small-scale version of the future detector allows researchers and engineers to test, develop and troubleshoot various aspects of its technology.
KIPAC researchers mourn the loss of the Hitomi spacecraft but are thrilled about the data it was still able to capture.
Astronomers around the world are looking for visible sources of gravitational waves.
The upgraded experiment aims to discover if neutrinos are their own antiparticles.
Computer simulations and lab experiments help researchers understand the violent universe and could potentially lead to new technologies that benefit humankind.
The discovery supports a powerful tool for discovering galaxies that are otherwise too distant to observe, and could lead to advances that improve our understanding of dark matter.
