Nuclear-atomic overlap for the isotope thorium-229
More than 99.9% of the mass of any atom is concentrated into a quadrillionth of its volume, the part occupied by the nucleus. Unimaginably small, dense and energetic, atomic nuclei are governed by laws quite ...
Rocket powered by nuclear fusion could send humans to Mars
Human travel to Mars has long been the unachievable dangling carrot for space programs. Now, astronauts could be a step closer to our nearest planetary neighbor through a unique manipulation of nuclear fusion, ...
Scientists recreating early universe quark-gluon plasma in giant particle accelerators
(Phys.org) —In the first few microseconds after the big bang, the universe was a superhot, superdense primordial soup of "quarks" and "gluons," particles of matter and carriers of force respectively. This ...
Now confident: CERN physicists say new particle is Higgs boson (Update 3)
Physicists said Thursday they are now confident they have discovered a crucial subatomic particle known as a Higgs boson—a major discovery that will go a long ways toward helping them explain why the universe ...
