You are getting sleeeeeeepy….. | Cosmic Variance

Ikeguchi Laboratories has posted one of the most fantastic “physics in action” videos I’ve seen in a long time:

Physicists reveal first images of Landau levels

Physicists have directly imaged Landau Levels – the quantum levels that determine electron behaviour in a strong magnetic field – for the first time since they were theoretically conceived of by Nobel prize winner Lev Landau in 1930.

Nano-hillocks: Of mountains and craters

In the field of nanotechnology, electrically-charged particles are frequently used as tools for surface modification. Researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the TU Vienna were at last able to reconcile important issues concerning the effects of highly charged ions on surfaces.

Mysteries of Time: New Teaching Company Course | Cosmic Variance

Just in time for the holidays (Halloween totally counts as a holiday), the Teaching Company (a/k/a “The Great Courses) is releasing a new course I recorded — Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time.

Researchers say atomic clocks now good enough to measure Earth's geoid

(Phys.org)—Researchers from the University of Zurich say that atomic clock technology has sufficiently progressed to the point that it should now be feasible to use them to measure the Earth's geoid, thereby producing more accurate geophysical estimates of oil and mineral deposits, as well as water reservoirs.

Out There: Digging Up the Early Universe

Reconstructing ancient history is not easy to do. Just ask a paleontologist: No matter how many dinosaur skeletons or Neanderthal skulls scientists dig up, they still can tell only a small part of the story of what life on Earth was like millions, or even thousands, of years ago.

NASA Awards Space Launch System Advanced Booster Contracts

NASA has awarded three contracts totaling $137.3 million to improve the affordability, reliability and performance of an advanced booster for the Space Launch System (SLS).

American Resupply Missions to the Space Station Progressing

Orbital Sciences Corporation Monday rolled the first stage of its Antares rocket to the launch pad of the nation's newest spaceport - the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at Wallops Island, Va. - while in Florida, Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) moves ahead with preparations for an Oct. 7 launch to the International Space Station for NASA's first Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) mission.
