Big fusion energy milestone achieved at Livermore lab

Ignition -- the process of releasing fusion energy equal to or greater than the amount of energy used to confine the fuel -- has...

The mystery of neutron stars heats up

Until now, scientists were pretty sure they knew how the surface of a neutron star – a super dense star that forms when a...

Study Reduces Casimir Force to Lowest Recorded Level

A research team that includes a physics professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) has recorded a drastically reduced measurement of the Casimir effect,...

Toward a truly white organic LED

By inserting platinum atoms into an organic semiconductor, University of Utah physicists were able to "tune" the plastic-like polymer to emit light of different...

NASA’s Finds Particle Accelerator at Heart of Earth’s Radiation Belts

Scientists have discovered a massive particle accelerator in the heart of one of the harshest regions of near-Earth space, a region of super-energetic, charged...

Supercomputers simulate orbital debris impacts on spacecraft

We know it's out there, debris from 50 years of space exploration — aluminum, steel, nylon, even liquid sodium from Russian satellites — orbiting...

Scientists model brain structure to help computers recognize objects

An essential question confronting neuroscientists and computer vision researchers alike is how objects can be identified by simply "looking" at an image. Introspectively, we...

Story tips from the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National...

When a Rhode-Island-sized ice chunk separates from Greenland, is the calving due to typical seasonal variations or a long-term warmer world? A project called the Scalable, Efficient, and Accurate Community Ice Sheet Model, or SEACISM, on the Jagua...

Dry lake reveals evidence of southwestern ‘megadroughts’

LOS ALAMOS, New Mexico, February 28, 2011 -- There's an old saying that if you don't like the weather in New Mexico, wait five minutes. Maybe it should be amended to 10,000 years, according to new research. In a letter published recently in the jo...

Building mental muscles through theoretical physics

INDIANAPOLIS -- A grant from the D. J. Angus-Scientech Educational Foundation has made it possible for a student from a suburban Indianapolis high school to co-author, along with his mentor and two other scientists, a theoretical physics study in...
