NASA Hosts Jan. 15 Teleconference on Curiosity Rover Progress

NASA will host a media teleconference at 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST) Tuesday, Jan. 15, to provide an update about the Curiosity rover's mission to Mars' Gale Crater.

Understanding mechanisms of electron-molecule collisions could help predict operations inside ITER fusion chamber

An international team of physicists has calculated the efficiency of a reaction involving an incoming electron kicking out an electron from the metal beryllium (Be) or its hydrogen compound molecules, in an article about to be published in European Physical Journal D.

10-year study reveals incredible level of accuracy to estimate intrinsic magnetic properties of two subatomic particles

The electron is found in every atom and plays a key role in almost every chemical reaction. So, a complete understanding of its physical properties is vital. Researchers from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science, together with their colleagues from Nagoya University, Japan, and Cornell University in the US, have completed the most precise calculations of the magnetic properties of the electron and a similar, heavier particle known as a muon. These results provide a stringent test of physicists' understanding of the subatomic world.

How to treat heat like light: New approach using nanoparticle alloys allows heat to be focused or reflected just like electromagnetic waves

A new technique provides a new way of manipulating heat, allowing it to be controlled much as light waves can be manipulated by lenses and mirrors.

Fusion helped by collision science

Understanding the mechanisms of electron-molecule collisions could help predict the operations inside the fusion chamber of the ITER reactor. Physicists have calculated the efficiency of a reaction involving an incoming electron kicking out an electron from the metal beryllium (Be) or its hydrogen compound molecules, in a new article.

New approach using nanoparticle alloys allows heat to be focused or reflected just like electromagnetic waves

An MIT researcher has developed a technique that provides a new way of manipulating heat, allowing it to be controlled much as light waves can be manipulated by lenses and mirrors.

NASA Selects High-Performing Interns As Student Ambassadors

NASA has inducted 86 top-performing interns into the 2013 NASA Student Ambassadors Virtual Community, a vital component of the agency's ongoing effort to engage undergraduate and graduate students in science, engineering, mathematics and technology (STEM) research and interactive opportunities. This fifth group of student ambassadors, Cohort V, includes interns from 32 states and 70 different universities.

NASA Selects Scientific Computing and Technical Services Contract

NASA has selected Computer Science Corporation of Falls Church, Va., to support the Computational and Information Science Technology Office (CISTO) at the agency's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
