In astronomy we love focusing on the bigger picture. We’re searching for exoplanets in the vast hope that we may begin to paint a picture of how planetary systems form; We’re using the Hubble Space Telescope to peer into the earliest history of the cosmos; And we’re building gravitational wave detectors in order to better…
There is no easy way to oversee the construction of the largest experimental nuclear device in history.
As a follow-up, here is more information on nuclear power in Finland and plans for final disposal.
On this day in 1896 French physicist Henri Becquerel (15 December 1852 – 25 August 1908) discovered the principle of radioactive decay when he exposed...
The National Physical Laboratory [NPL] has been officially declared by the European Physical Society Historic Site as the birthplace of atomic timekeeping.
New theoretical calculations show that an x-ray free-electron-laser pulse can generate transitions in excited nuclei via an indirect process involving electron capture.
An interesting new field to explore for x-ray free-electron laser researchers.
CC-BY-ND Six new chemical elements were produced at GSI. Sigurd Hofmann is one of the discoverers and shows how sophisticated you have to be to create a new ...
Atomic nuclei are governed by laws quite distinct from those that regulate atomic electrons, which constitute the outer part of atoms and which are immediately responsible for light, chemistry and thus life. Yet there are sporadic regions of contact between these disparate realms. JQI Adjunct Fellow Marianna Safronova and her collaborators have been exploring one area of nuclear-atomic overlap for the isotope thorium-229.
By Rod Adams During the three years since March 11, 2011, the world has had the opportunity to learn a number of challenging but necessary lessons about the commercial use of nuclear energy.

Atmospheric radiation levels in Tokyo are at the same level as before the Fukushima nuclear accident three years ago and are below those in Paris and London.
Conference: 15 Jul 2014 - 17 Jul 2014, University of York, York, Y010 5DD, United Kingdom. Organized by IOP Nuclear Physics Group.
The universe is the grandest merger story that there is. Complete with mysterious origins, forces of light and darkness, and chemistry…
A mythology of the stars
A new book by Princeton University historian Angela Creager explains how knowledge and technology that grew out of the Manhattan Project paved the way for important…
This list of recommended actions for auxiliary police officers trying to quell panic in their communities was part of a 1951 booklet published by the New York State Police in 1951. I found the pamphlet in the collections of San Francisco’s Prelinger Library.
Great piece of history!
MEISTeR - named from "maintenance equipment integrated system of telecontrol robot" has been developed to perform maintenance, repair and other tasks at disaster or severe accident sites.MHI began full demonstration testing of the robot...
Robert Tribble, a widely respected physicist who has played a key role in charting the future direction of nuclear science in the U.S., has been named Deputy Director for Science & Technology at Brookhaven National Laboratory, effective February 24, 2014.
Researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have tested a new approach to fabricating spin valves. Using ion beams, the researchers have succeeded in structuring an iron aluminium alloy in such a way as to subdivide the material into individually magnetizable regions at the nanometer ...
