A swarm of atoms in a Stanford lab has become the coldest stuff on Earth. At about 50 trillionths of a kelvin, the atoms’ temperature was about a tenth of the previous record. Read the associated Physical Review Letters abstract.
What happens to the subsurface soil and sand impacted by missile or meteor? It's not an everyday question, but it's one that intrigued scientists at Duke University, so a group of physicists there decided to find out. Read the associated Physical Review Letters abstract.
Researchers from Malaysia and the U.K. have detected a human fingerprint deep in the Borneo rainforest in Southeast Asia. Their research suggests that cold winds blowing from the north carry industrial pollutants from East Asia to the equator.
In a scientific ghost story, a U.S. atom smasher has made an important scientific contribution 3.5 years after it shut down. Scientists are reporting that the Tevatron collider in Batavia, Illinois, has provided new details about...
It is a border-control agent's nightmare: a terrorist sneaks uranium or plutonium through a seaport and into an urban center, and uses it to set off a dirty bomb or a nuclear weapon. At the American Physical Society meeting in Baltimore, physicists presented research on...
Thinking of particle physics experiments may inspire images of huge, multibillion-dollar facilities, such as Europe's Large Hadron Collider. But exploring the secrets of subatomic particles doesn't require a massive financial commitment. Read the associated 2015 APS April...
