Axion Search For Dark Matter
2013-11-07 08:36:41

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team at the University of Washington, led by Professor Leslie Rosenberg, is hunting for a theorized but never-before-seen elementary particle called an axion. The researchers will use the recently retooled, extremely sensitive detector that is currently in a testing and shakeout phase at UW's Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics Astrophysics. Physicists in the late 1970s first hypothesized the axion as a solution to a...

LUX Dark Matter Detector Finds Nothing Yet

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Just three months into its operation the Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment is already the most sensitive dark matter detector in the world, according to scientists from Brown University. “LUX is blazing the path to illuminating the nature of dark matter,” said Rick Gaitskell, professor of physics at Brown University and project spokesperson. The detector sits over a mile below the Sanford Underground Research Facility in...

Experiment Looks For Dark Matter Particle
2013-10-29 08:16:46

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As we peer into the darkness of space we find stars, planets, nebulae, and gas clouds. These objects are all made of normal matter – protons, neutrons, electrons, and other elementary particles. But it is the matter that we don’t see that has confounded astronomers for decades. An estimated 80 percent of the stuff that makes up the Universe does not interact electromagnetically. This aptly named dark matter is...

Physicist who worked on nobel winning hadron experiment to discuss the God particle at Maker House. (PRWEB) October 09, 2013 Professor Higgs and Professor Englert were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics this week for the confirmation of the Higgs particle (aka the God Particle). But what exactly is that? What does it do? In a way it gives things their mass, but a more appropriate question might be why do things have mass at all? Physicists predicted that the previously undetected particle...

Physics

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...

Physics is the scientific study of matter and its motion through space/time and its derivitives, including energy and force. It is generally the analysis of nature and is conducted to help us understand how the universe behaves. Physics comes from the Greek word physis, meaning "nature". It is among the oldest academic disciplines, and perhaps the oldest pertaining to astronomy. Physics has been considered synonymous with philosophy, chemistry, mathematics, and biology for more than 2000...

WIMP -- In astronomy, WIMPs, or weakly interacting massive particles, figure into one explanation of the dark matter problem. The particles are called "weakly interacting" because they seem not to have much interaction with normal matter (electrons, protons, and neutrons) other than gravitational attraction (thus "massive"). Assuming that there are Weakly Interacting Massive Particles, these particles would then fall out of equilibrium with the universe when they are non-relativistic....

Strange Matter -- Strange matter (also known as quark matter) is an ultra-dense phase of matter that is theorized to form inside particularly massive neutron stars (which are then known as "strange stars" or "quark stars"). It's theorized that when neutronium is put under sufficient pressure due to the gravitation of a large neutron star, the individual neutrons break down and their constituent quarks form strange matter. Strange matter is composed of strange quarks bound to each...

Massive Compact Halo Object (MACHO) -- Massive compact halo objects, or MACHOs, are a type of astronomical body proposed as one possible explanation for the presence of dark matter in galactic halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, far smaller than a star, which drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. Recent work has suggested that MACHOs are not...
