John P. Millis, Ph.D. for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online For the last four years Congress and the White House have been unable to pass a federal budget, settling each time for continuing resolutions. However, such stopgaps keep funding levels flat, or even, accounting for inflation, in decline. In 2007, a plan was laid out to maintain US leadership in the field of nuclear physics, with the continued support of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a significant upgrade...

Alan McStravick for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Just outside of Geneva, Switzerland is one of the world´s foremost ongoing experiments to explore not only the smallest components of our universe, but, in so doing, to understand the vastness of space, our universe as a whole, and just how it came into being. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is an approximately 17-mile-long ring buried some 330 feet underground which spans the border between Switzerland and France. The...

RHIC Atom Smasher Reveals First Hints Of Phase Boundary

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have observed the first glimpses of a possible boundary separating ordinary nuclear matter, made up of protons and neutrons, from the seething soup of their constituent quarks and gluons using the versatility and new capabilities of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). A quark-gluon plasma (QGP) exists at extremely high temperatures or density,...

[ Watch the Video ] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com As record-setting heat and wildfires continue to consume Colorado, one team of scientists has created a temperature so hot the Sun would melt. Scientists working with a giant atom smasher at New York's Brookhaven National Laboratory have created the hottest temperature ever seen on Earth, at 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit. The excruciatingly hot temperature has been verified by the Guinness Book of Records, and confirmed as...

Large Hadron Collider Set To Investigate Big Bang With More Precision

Researchers at Switzerland´s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are setting aside four weeks to investigate the conditions of the early universe in more detail than ever before and taking a break from searching for the Higgs boson, David Shiga from New Scientist is reporting. The Higgs boson experiment has produced roughly 6 inverse femtobarns of collision data, about three times the total used in the last major analysis searching for the elusive particle, thought to endow other particles...

By comparing theory with data from STAR, Berkeley Lab scientists and their colleagues map phase changes in the quark-gluon plasma In its infancy, when the universe was a few millionths of a second old, the elemental constituents of matter moved freely in a hot, dense soup of quarks and gluons. As the universe expanded, this quark"“gluon plasma quickly cooled, and protons and neutrons and other forms of normal matter "froze out": the quarks became bound together by the exchange of...

The antimatter equivalent of helium nuclei has been produced by an international team of physicists working with the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York. Two University of California, Davis professors are members of the team. A paper describing their results is published online this week by the journal Nature. "This is the heaviest antimatter anyone has ever created," said Manuel Calderon de la Barca Sanchez, professor...

Time-of-flight detector designed at Rice's Bonner Lab critical to antihelium observation Physicists at Rice University and their collaborators have detected the antimatter partner of the helium nucleus, antihelium-4. This newly observed particle is the heaviest antimatter particle ever detected. Scientists at Rice's Bonner Lab designed and built the new time-of-flight detector that identified antihelium-4. The $7.5 million detector was built by a U.S.-China collaboration led by Rice, with...


Word of the Day
call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
