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...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers reported today in the journal Science Express that the ratio of the proton's mass to that of the electron has hardly changed over the past seven billion years. This fundamental constant of nature has changed by a maximum of one hundred thousandth of a percent over cosmic history. Scientists from VU University Amsterdam and the Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie (MPIfR) used the Effelsberg 100-m radio...

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...
