Pioneer strategy for creating new materials

Making something new is never easy. Scientists constantly theorize about new materials, but when the material is manufactured it doesn't always work as expected. To create a new strategy for designing materials, scientists combined two different approaches at two different facilities to synthesize new materials. This new strategy gives faster feedback on what growth schemes are best, thus shortening the timeframe to manufacture a new, stable material for energy transport and conversion applications.

The unifying framework of symmetry reveals properties of a broad range of physical systems

Symmetry is one of the most fundamental concepts in nature, and it can give rise to profound and wide-reaching physical effects. A one-dimensional wire, for example, has a different symmetry and very different mechanical properties to those of a two-dimensional sheet of the same material. Tomoya Hayata and Yoshimasa Hidaka from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science have now studied the consequences of breaking symmetry for various systems found in nature, providing a powerful, general framework to describe the link between properties and symmetries.

NASA Opens Media Accreditation for Orion Move in Preparation for First Flight

Media accreditation now is open to attend an event marking the move of NASA's Orion spacecraft at the agency's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The spacecraft will be transferred from the Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building to the Payload Hazardous Servicing Facility during the second week of September.

NASA Probes Studying Earth’s Radiation Belts to Celebrate Two Year Anniversary

NASA's twin Van Allen Probes will celebrate on Saturday two years of studying the sun’s influence on our planet and near-Earth space. The probes, shortly after launch in August 2012, discovered a third radiation belt around Earth when only two had previously been detected.

Visit NASA's display throughout the weekend for unique insights into the past and future aeronautics and space program.

Mississippi and Louisiana Students Get Out-of-This-World Start to the School Year

Students from Mississippi and Louisiana will gather at the INFINITY Science Center in Pearlington, Mississippi, for a long-distance call with NASA astronauts currently orbiting Earth aboard the International Space Station.

What time is it in the universe?

Flavor Flav knows what time it is. At least he does for Flavor Flav. Even with all his moving and accelerating, with the planet, the solar system, getting on planes, taking elevators, and perhaps even some light jogging. In the immortal words of Kool Moe Dee. Do you know what time it is?

Experiments reveal a neutron halo around neutron-rich magnesium nuclei

Most stable atomic nuclei are made up of roughly an equal number of protons and neutrons. With the right equipment, however, physicists can create nuclei with many additional neutrons. These neutron-rich nuclei are short-lived but represent an important tool for developing a better understanding of how the elements in the Universe were created.
