Molecular Matter Is The Same As 7 Billion Years Ago
2012-12-13 14:29:50

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...

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...
