New Methods For Cooling Of Ions Developed
2012-11-26 15:13:04

Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz Ions are cooled during collisions with cold atoms / Similar processes assumed to occur in space Among the most important techniques developed in atomic physics over the past few years are methods that enable the storage and cooling of atoms and ions at temperatures just above absolute zero. Scientists from Bangalore and Mainz have now demonstrated in an experiment that captured ions can also be cooled through contact with cold atoms...

The Hunt Is On For Extraterrestrial Amino Acids
2012-11-16 15:54:01

NASA The hunt for the organic molecules that create proteins and enzymes critical for life here on Earth has largely happened in sophisticated terrestrial laboratories equipped with high-tech gadgetry needed to tease out their presence in space rocks and other extraterrestrial samples. A technologist at NASA´s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., now wants to take that search to the sources themselves. Stephanie Getty, who recently was selected as Goddard´s...
