Pear Shaped Atomic Nuclei
2013-05-09 11:28:49

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online According to a study in the journal Nature, a team of international scientists has found the first ever direct evidence of pear-shaped atomic nuclei. Bizarre pear-shaped nuclei could be the key to understanding one of the great mysteries of the universe: the reason for the Big Bang´s creation of a massive imbalance between matter and antimatter. "If equal amounts of matter and antimatter were created at the Big Bang, everything...

COLLEGE STATION, Texas, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the mind of Texas A&M University physicist Peter McIntyre, two of America's most pressing energy challenges -- what to do with radiotoxic spent nuclear fuel and dwindling energy resources -- can be solved in one scientific swipe. He is developing the technology that is capable of destroying the dangerous waste and, at the same time, potentially providing safe nuclear power for thousands of years into the future. (Logo:...

Proton May Have Lost Weight
2013-01-25 08:27:16

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study, released this week in the journal Science, shows that even in the world of sub-atomic particles, size matters. An international group of scientists led by Aldo Antognini, a physicist at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, say the proton, a basic building block of all matter, appears to be smaller than previously thought. This finding, which confirms a similar result the team showed in 2010, may open new...

Measuring The Nuclear Reaction Pathway Of Novae
2013-01-16 05:55:43

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A multinational team of scientists has revealed new information about the explosive events known as novae. Novae are dramatic stellar explosions driven by nuclear processes that make previously unseen stars visible for a short time. The team of astrophysicists measured the nuclear structure of the radioactive neon produced through this process in unprecedented detail. The study, led by the University of York, UK, and Universitat...

Structure Of Carbon’s ‘Hoyle State’ Revealed By Researchers
2012-12-10 21:12:05

North Carolina State University A North Carolina State University researcher has taken a “snapshot” of the way particles combine to form carbon-12, the element that makes all life on Earth possible.  And the picture looks like a bent arm. Carbon-12 can only exist when three alpha particles, or helium-4 nuclei, combine in a very specific way. This combination is known as the Hoyle state. NC State physicist Dean Lee and German colleagues Evgeny Epelbaum, Hermann Krebs and...

Graphite Experiment Leads To Unexpected Results
2012-11-29 06:26:14

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists from the University of Warwick and Oxford University have come up with unexpected results in an experiment with strongly heated graphite, posing a new problem for physicists working in laser-driven nuclear fusion. The research may lead astrophysicists to revise the understanding of the life cycle of giant planets and stars. The team was attempting to gain a better understanding about how energy is shared between the...
