Introducing our ‘Highlights of 2016’ collection
We look back at the articles which were most popular with our readers in the last 12 months.
Forget shopping this black Friday, its all about astronomy, cloaking and black holes.
Nuclear reactions in stars are the powerhouses of the universe, and its these same processes that create the elements. Understanding these processes is one of the core aims in the field of nuclear astrophysics – something that our recent interview… Read More ›
Dr Florian Reindl and Dr Moritz v. Sivers tell us about the hunt for dark matter and rare nuclear decays using ultra-sensitive detectors.
How exactly do you launch strings of neutrino detectors hundreds of meters long, hundreds of meters deep in the ocean?
A square kilometre neutrino telescope deep in the Mediterranean sea. We find out more with spokesperson Maarten de Jong.
Professor Hendrik Schatz talks to us about the field that shapes the understanding of everything we see in the night sky and the planet we live on.
Paul Hardaker, CEO: “We know well that science benefits the economy and creates jobs. If we are to see these benefits continue to grow we need to remain competitive in funding, and both the UK and Ireland need to be the places where physicists can do world-class science.”
All our evidence for dark matter is based on indirect observations. That isn’t enough, we need direct detection.
Read an interview with an expert who’s bridging the gap between atomic and nuclear physics.
When not at conferences or doing peer-review, we too like to keep-up-to date with interesting science. Plus it’s an excuse to surf the web at work! Here’s what we’ve been reading and talking about recently.
Not directly perhaps, but did it influence the final hammer blow 65 million years ago?
Analysing the atmospheres of exoplanets needs knowledge of the molecules they are made up of. University College London’s Professor Jonathan Tennyson is working on the ExoMol project to do just that. We talk to him about his work.
Find out more about the event of the year in ultrarelativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions.
The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory’s new report shows the world why it will be an important step in our understanding of the universe we live in.
