Experiments by British scientists could reveal the make-up of the universe, the University of Liverpool said Thursday. The examinations will become part of the Advanced Gamma Tracking Array experiment, which seeks to create a so-called fingerprint of the inside of the atomic nucleus to help scientists understand the universe's structure, including humans and stars, the university said in a release. Scientists will analyze particle interactions that produce gamma rays, the university said, and...
