32 Washington: Scientists are trying to find what exactly powers neutron stars' x-ray superbursts. Peter Moller of Los Alamos National Laboratory's Theoretical Division, said that understanding this would yield important insights about the
However, research by a team of scientists led by a Michigan State University physicist has researchers rethinking that. Scientists had long thought that nuclear reactions within the crust, the thick, solid, outermost layer of the star, contributed to
Back in April of this year, the same team of physicists captured the highest energy neutrinos ever detected. Dubbed Bert and Ernie, the elusive subatomic particles likely originated from beyond our solar system, and possibly even our galaxy.
Dark Matter Experiment Has Detected Nothing, Researchers Say Proudly" sounds like something you'd see at the top of an Onion article...It's from The New York Times 's coverage of the Large Underground Xenon dark matter experiment (a.k.a. "LUX" ).
58 Washington: The search for the elusive dark matter has met with vain after the first results from a high-tech instrument turned up empty. After its first run of more than three months, operating a mile underground in the Black Hills of South
Nearly a mile underground in an abandoned gold mine, one of the most important quests in physics has come up empty-handed in the search for the elusive substance known as dark matter, scientists announced Wednesday. The most advanced Earth-based
China's top scientific research institute is in the process of developing five space research satellites, including one for the detection of dark matter particles. "We expect to launch at least three to four of them before 2015," said Bai Chunli,
The concept of a time machine typically conjures up images of an implausible plot device used in a few too many science-fiction storylines. But according to Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which explains how gravity operates in the
06 If I'm honest and I was an employer and someone really overweight came for an interview I would be lying if I said their shape wouldn't influence my decision. Being fat not only spells potential health problems and possible sickness leave down the
It] may lead us to understand why there is so much more matter than antimatter in the universe...The experiment has now collected enough data for the researchers to say the probability of this effect being produced by random statistical fluctuations
