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...

Has The LHC Created A New Form Of Matter?
2012-11-28 13:02:35

John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In September 2012, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) conducted a short run of collisions between protons and lead nuclei. The roughly two million events recorded were set to serve as a baseline for lead-lead collisions anticipated for next year. However, these events produced an unexpected result. Ridge Correlations Very high-energy particle collisions produce thousands of new particles which stream away from the...

Toshiba Introduces Robot Able To Withstand High Radiation
2012-11-22 11:57:31

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Toshiba developed a robot it claims is able to withstand high radiation, making it capable of working in nuclear disaster sites such as those at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. The new Japanese robot has four legs, and is capable of climbing over debris and venturing into radiated areas off-limits to humans. Toshiba said that the robot's wireless network is still able to be controlled in high radiation. While the advancement...

Nuclear Fallout
2013-04-01 10:26:30

Nuclear fallout, or just simply fallout, known also as Black Rain, is the residual radioactive material that is propelled into the upper atmosphere after a nuclear black or a nuclear reaction that is conducted in an unshielded facility. It is so called because it "fall out" of the sky after the explosion and the shock wave have passed. It most commonly refers to the radioactive dust and ash that is created when a nuclear weapon explodes, but such dust can also come from a damaged nuclear...

Fermium is a synthetic, radioactive metallic element. It has the symbol Fm and atomic number 100. It is an element in the actinide series. It is named after nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi. Fermium became the eighth transuranic (having an atomic number greater than 92) element discovered. It was first discovered in 1952 by a team of scientists led by Albert Ghiorso. They found fermium-255 in debris of the first hydrogen bomb explosion from Operation Ivy. Fermium-255 was created when...

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
