Team first to detect neutrinos made by a particle collider

In a scientific first, a team led by physicists at the University of California, Irvine has detected neutrinos created by a particle collider. The discovery promises to deepen scientists' understanding of the subatomic particles, ...

Gigapixel 3D microscope captures life in unprecedented detail

When a couple of plucky graduate students took the first picture with their pieced-together microscope, it turned out better than they'd hoped. Sure, there was a hole in one section and another was upside down—but they ...
