Spotting accelerator-produced neutrinos in a cosmic haystack

Physicists have developed new tools to help tone down the cosmic "noise" when searching for signs of particles called neutrinos in detectors located near Earth's surface. This method combines data-sifting techniques with ...

Mysterious clouds could offer new clues on dark matter

The hunt for gravitational waves, ripples in space and time caused by major cosmic cataclysms, could help solve one of the Universe's other burning mysteries—boson clouds and whether they are a leading contender for dark ...

CERN to provide second DUNE cryostat

Neutrinos are tricky beasts. Alone among known fundamental particles, they suffer from an identity crisis—if it were possible to put them on a weighing scale, you would unpredictably measure one of three possible masses. ...

Collisions of light produce matter/antimatter from pure energy

Scientists studying particle collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)—a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science user facility for nuclear physics research at DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory—have ...

Juno detects Jupiter's highest-energy ions

Jupiter's planetary radiation environment is the most intense in the solar system. NASA's Juno spacecraft has been orbiting the planet closer than any previous mission since 2016, investigating its innermost radiation belts ...
