Researchers have discovered that microscopic "bubbles" developed at Kansas State University are safe and effective storage lockers for harmful isotopes that emit ionizing radiation for treating tumors. The findings can benefit patient health and advance radiation therapy used to treat cancer and other diseases, said John M. Tomich, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics who is affiliated with the university's Johnson Cancer Research Center. Tomich conducted the study with...

The HAWK is field gamma spectrometer based on high purity germanium technology. The HAWK has been designed to bridge the gap in commercially available solutions by offering the customers an affordable solution devoid of the the disadvantages of the more expensive systems in the market. Middletown, Connecticut (PRWEB) September 18, 2013 Commercially available high resolution field Gamma Spectrometers are either too heavy for field use or are priced beyond the budgets of most users...

Fukushima Plume To Be Harmless By The Time It Reaches US Shores In 2014
2013-08-29 04:02:04

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online The radioactive ocean plume created as a result of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster is expected to reach North America by next year, according to research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Deep-Sea Research 1. Fortunately, the study authors report the plume will be harmless by the time it reaches US shores. “Observers on the west coast of the United States will be able to see a measurable increase...

GERDA sets new limits on extremely rare decay Neutrinos are the most elusive particles having extremely weak interactions with all other particles. They have rather unusual properties and are even expected to be identical with their own antiparticles. So far this property is, however, not experimentally verified even though many studies of neutrinos over the last 60 years have already boosted our understanding of elementary particle physics. Now scientists of the GERDA collaboration...

Antimatter Particles From Solar Flares
2013-07-10 08:32:20

John P. Millis, PhD for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When the Universe was born, equal amounts of matter and anti-matter - matter with the same physical behavior as its matter counterparts, but with opposite charge - should have been created. However, the cosmos now appears to be dominated by normal matter. Usually, direct study of anti-matter requires costly particle-accelerator experiments, or in some cases space-based observatories. Now however, Gregory D. Fleishman from the...

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...

Trading Symbol TSX-V - AMW VANCOUVER, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Alpha Minerals Inc. (formerly ESO Uranium Corp.) (TSX-V: AMW), (the "Company" or "Alpha"), and its Joint Venture partner, Fission Energy Corp (TSX-V:FIS) report that core drilling on the Patterson Lake South project ("PLS") located in the Athabasca Basin area of northern Saskatchewan, has intersected a 6.0 metre wide interval of high grade mineralization with visible massive pitchblende in veins (up to 21 centimetres...

Supernova Remnant Powered By Radioactive Decay Of Titanium
2012-10-18 04:20:39

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Radioactive titanium associated with supernova remnant 1987A has been directly detected by ESA's Integral space observatory. The glowing remnant around the exploded star has likely been powered by the decaying from this titanium for the last 20 years. The first space observatory that can simultaneously observe objects in gamma rays, X-rays and visible light, Integral's principal targets are violent explosions known as gamma ray...

Moon And Martian Soil Could Shield Against Cosmic Radiation
2012-10-10 12:57:05

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online The European Space Agency (ESA) is looking into how Moon and Martian soil could be used to help shield astronauts in space. ESA is teaming up with Germany's GSI particle accelerator for a two-year project in assessing promising materials for shielding future astronauts en route to the Moon, an asteroid or Mars. “We are working with the only facility in Europe capable of simulating the high-energy heavy atomic nuclei found in...

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...
