'New physics' charmingly escapes us

In the world of elementary particles, traces of a potential "new physics" may be concealed in processes related to the decay of baryons. Analysis of data from the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider performed by scientists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow have, however, shown that one of the rarest decays of baryons containing the charm quark so far shows no anomalies.

Challenger Center, McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Centers Call Astronaut in Space

The Challenger Center and the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center will participate in live calls with a NASA astronaut currently living and working aboard the International Space Station as part of NASA’s Year of Education on Station (YES) next week.

NASA Builds STEM Challenges with FIRST and LEGO

NASA supports unique STEM learning opportunities for students and teachers to contribute to our work as we continue our legacy through an unprecedented array of missions – from building the capability to send humans back to the Moon and beyond, developing cutting-edge technologies, and studying the Earth’s systems.

High-caliber research launches NSLS-II beamline into operations

A new experimental station (beamline) has begun operations at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II)—a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory. Called the Beamline for Materials Measurement (BMM), it offers scientists state-of-the-art technology for using a classic synchrotron technique: X-ray absorption spectroscopy.

Particle physicists team up with AI to solve toughest science problems

Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest particle accelerator at the European particle physics lab CERN, produce about a million gigabytes of data every second. Even after reduction and compression, the data amassed in just one hour is similar to the data volume Facebook collects in an entire year – too much to store and analyze.

Researchers put a new spin on cooling electronic hotspots

The longevity of electronic devices is tested in many ways as they endure the rigors of daily usage. Even when they are treated with the utmost care, they still have a major challenge to overcome – the removal of heat.

Advanced microscopy technique reveals new aspects of water at the nanoscale level

A new microscopy technique allows researchers to visualize liquids at the nanoscale level -- about 10 times more resolution than with traditional transmission electron microscopy -- for the first time.

Insight into catalysis through novel study of X-ray absorption spectroscopy

An international team has made a breakthrough at BESSY II. For the first time, they succeeded in investigating electronic states of a transition metal in detail and drawing reliable conclusions on their catalytic effect from the data. These results are helpful for the development of future applications of catalytic transition-metal systems.

First-of-its-kind material for the quantum age

A physicist has discovered a new material that has the potential to become a building block in the new era of quantum materials, those that are composed of microscopically condensed matter and expected to change our development of technology.
