Isotope found in rainwater A researcher at Case Western Reserve University has detected tiny amounts of Iodine 131 from Japan in rainwater collected from the roof of a campus building. Gerald Matisoff, professor of geology, said the presence of the isotope presents no danger to human health. He estimated the level of radiation is about one-tenth that of natural background radiation. "In theory, the Iodine 131 could have come from any radioactive waste processing facility," Matisoff said....

Exploring an 'island of inversion,' physicists find new clues to element synthesis in supernovaeElements heavier than iron come into being only in powerful stellar explosions, supernovae. During nuclear reactions all kinds of short-lived atomic nuclei are formed, including more stable combinations "“ the so-called magic numbers "“ predicted by theory. Yet here, too, there are exceptions: the islands of inversion. Headed by physicists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the...
