  • Mystery of sun's corona solved? It's nanoflares, scientists say

    Mystery of sun's corona solved? It's nanoflares, scientists say
    One of the greatest mysteries of how stars behave has been right in our own backyard: the sun’s corona. Scientists have long wondered what heats this thin, ethereal shell of particles to roughly 300 times the temperature of the surface of the sun...
  • Jefferson Lab employees eligible for federal benefits for work-related ills

    Jefferson Lab employees eligible for federal benefits for work-related ills
    Current and former employees of Jefferson Lab in Newport News who believe they became ill from work-related exposure to radiation or toxic substances can meet with federal officials Tuesday to see if they're eligible for compensation and medical benefits....
  • Hyper-accurate atomic clock won't lose a second in 15 billion years

    Hyper-accurate atomic clock won't lose a second in 15 billion years
    Scientists have created an atomic clock so precise that it won't lose or gain a single second in 15 billion years -- roughly the age of our universe. But the clock isn't just steady, it's also amazingly accurate. So accurate in fact, that it can...
  • Hubble Space Telescope marking 25th anniversary in orbit

    One of NASA's crowning glories, the Hubble Space Telescope, marks its 25th anniversary this week. With 1 million-plus observations, including those of some of the farthest and oldest galaxies ever beheld by humanity, no man-made satellite has touched...
  • European physicist discusses Higgs boson at Brown University

    The historic 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson particle and the particle accelerator that detected it are getting scientists closer to understanding the creation of the universe, the head of the European Organization for Nuclear Research said Monday....
  • At Parkland High School, a physics teacher's room of wonders

    At Parkland High School, a physics teacher's room of wonders
    One day a while back, Jeffrey Wetherhold found a discarded bust of Elvis Presley at the curb near his home in Allentown, so naturally he picked it up and brought it to the Parkland High School classroom where he teaches physics. It made a nice holder for...
  • Sen. Tim Kaine pushes for a $1 billion collider at Jefferson Lab in Newport News

     Sen. Tim Kaine pushes for a $1 billion collider at Jefferson Lab in Newport News
    Inside cavernous Hall C at Jefferson Lab in Newport News, Sen. Tim Kaine stood under massive structures of concrete and steel that are used to help blast electrons at targets in the name of science. Nuclear physicist Cynthia Keppel was walking the...
  • Eureka! Complex organic molecules found in a young star system

    Eureka! Complex organic molecules found in a young star system
    Our solar system may not be as special as we thought. A new study of a young star’s protoplanetary disk finds the same kinds of complex organic molecules that are found on the comets in our own solar system. The findings, published in the...
  • A physicist explains 'Furious 7'

    Matthew Kleban holds a doctorate in physics from Stanford, conducted postdoctorate research at Albert Einstein's alma mater the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and is now part of the research group at NYU's Center for Cosmology and Particle...
  • Particle-smashing Large Hadron Collider off to a smooth restart

    Particle-smashing Large Hadron Collider off to a smooth restart
    After a two-year hiatus, the giant proton-smasher that discovered the Higgs boson is back in action – and ready for bigger challenges. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider, the most powerful particle accelerator in the world, successfully sent...
  • Investment, possible sale could boost eNeura's migraine treatment device

    Investment, possible sale could boost eNeura's migraine treatment device
    More than a decade after Maryland inventor Robert Fischell began exploring the use of magnets to relieve migraine pain, the idea could be on the verge of a $65 million sale. A deal with a Texas medical device company announced last week gives Baltimore-...
