Atomic Element 113 Confirmed
2012-09-27 06:10:37

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online To date, the atomic element 113 has been elusive, defying attempts to nail down its properties. But now, researchers at the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-based Science (RNC) claim to have obtained the most unambiguous data available so far. In experiments at the RIKEN Radioisotope Beam Factory (RIBF), a chain of six alpha decays was produced, conclusively identifying the element through connections to well-known daughter...

An Oak Ridge National Laboratory and University of Tennessee team has used the Department of Energy's Jaguar supercomputer to calculate the number of isotopes allowed by the laws of physics. The team, led by Witek Nazarewicz, used a quantum approach known as density functional theory, applying it independently to six leading models of the nuclear interaction to determine that there are about 7,000 possible combinations of protons and neutrons allowed in bound nuclei with up to 120 protons (a...

Lawrence LeBlond for RedOrbit.com The Moon, Earth´s closest companion for more than 4 billion years, is the object of a new theory on how our planet´s own natural satellite was created, reports ScienceNOW. It is scientifically believed that Earth collided with a hypothetical Mars-sized planet called Theia early in its existence producing a disc of magma that orbited Earth and eventually amalgamated to form the Moon. Under this giant impact hypothesis, models show that the...
