The new "HAWK" from NATS Incorporated is the answer to an affordable, light weight high resolution germanium detector (HPGe) based portable spectrometer offering the best price to performance
Experiments with neutrons at the Technische Universität München (TUM) show that the antidepressant lithium accumulates more strongly in white matter of the brain than in grey matter.
Gamma-ray bursts are thought to be the most powerful, energetic events in the Universe. They can release as much energy in one second as an entire galaxy expels in an entire year.
Scientists say they have detected what may be the first observational evidence of existence of a new exotic phase of matter in what is known as the "inner crust" of neutron stars, or pulsars.
Using revolutionary new techniques, a team led by Carnegie's Malcolm Guthrie has made a striking discovery about how ice behaves under pressure, changing ideas that date back almost 50 years.
NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has revealed that some of the most extreme objects in the universe may be more common than previously thought.
New research from an international team of scientists has found that the mysterious phenomenon known as dark lightning may be connected to visible lightning.
A research team from Birkbeck, University of London, Royal Holloway University and Uppsala University in Sweden, have helped explain how ozone causes severe respiratory problems and thousands of cases of premature death each year by attacking the fatty lining of our lungs.
X-ray Burster -- X-ray bursters are a class of binary stars which are luminous in X-rays. They contain a neutron star and a low-mass companion star. The companion fills its Roche lobe and therefore the neutron star is accreting matter from it. The inflowing gas forms an accretion disk around the neutron star. Sometimes X-ray bursters show a sudden increase in their X-ray luminosity, called X-ray burst. All properties of the X-ray bursts can be explained assuming that they result from...
