NASA Awards Contract for Construction, Maintenance, Environmental, Testing Services

NASA has selected Firelake-Arrowhead NASA Services of Lenexa, Kansas, to perform facility management, surveying, energy management, life safety code compliance and environmental management services for the agency’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.

Major discovery in controlling quantum states of single atoms

The scientists identified which mechanisms destroy the quantum properties of individual insulator. Using a Scanning Tunneling Microscope, which utilizes an atomically sharp metal tip, they were able to precisely image individual iron atoms and measure and control the time that the iron atom can maintain its quantum behavior.

Bringing a hidden superconducting state to light

Using high-intensity pulses of infrared light, scientists found evidence of superconductivity associated with charge 'stripes' in a material above the temperature at which it begins to transmit electricity without resistance -- a finding that could help them design better high-temperature superconductors.

NASA Marshall Outreach Spans All 67 Alabama Counties

: Whether it was through the extensive outreach to teachers and students, by fostering scores of small business opportunities, through research partnerships advancing aerospace technologies, or the hundreds of speaking engagements by NASA subject matter experts across the state, Marshall's outreach extended to every Alabama county last year.

When collective spins in a double domain system relax towards a negative-temperature state

A team of researchers from several institutions in Japan has described a physical system that can be described as existing above "absolute hot" and also below absolute zero. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the group outlines their ideas on collective spins in double domain systems and the interesting situations that can occur within them.

Group uses computer simulations to theorize characteristics of heaviest element oganesson

A team of researchers from the U.S., New Zealand and Norway has used computer simulations to predict several characteristics of the heaviest element, oganesson. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the group explains the factors that went into the simulation and discuss what it showed.
