(Phys.org)—In future it may be easier for chemists, biologists and physicists to obtain the ideal substance with which to clarify numerous research issues. For the first time, a team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute ...
(Phys.org)—A team of researchers, including engineers from Los Alamos National Laboratory, has demonstrated a new concept for a reliable nuclear reactor that could be used on space flights.
(Phys.org) -- The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) today officially approved new names for elements 114 and 116, the latest heavy elements to be added to the periodic table.
While modern-day humans use the most advanced engineering to build nuclear reactors, Nature sometimes makes them by accident.
The operator of Japan's crippled Fukushima atomic plant Thursday played down fears of an uncontrolled chain reaction at the site, despite the discovery of evidence of recent nuclear fission.
A fission reaction in a nuclear reactor? There's an "app" for that! An iPhone "application" or software developed by the University of Utah's Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute to look at medical CT or MRI scans ...
