So CT scanners look pretty badass when they're not covered in casing

So CT scanners look pretty badass when they're not covered in casing | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
"Supposedly this is a picture of a CT scanner sans casing," writes io9-reader Monica, "but it looks more to me like a first-generation Stargate." We heartily agree – and just wait until you see what this beastly contraption looks like in motion.

Covariant spectator theory of $np$ scattering: Deuteron quadrupole moment

Covariant spectator theory of $np$ scattering: Deuteron quadrupole moment | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Until recently, theoretical calculations constrained by precise neutron-proton scattering data have predicted a deuteron quadrupole moment that is too small. In this paper, the quadrupole moment is calculated using the covariant spectator theory with an interaction based on meson exchanges. A detailed analysis of all the relativistic contributions demonstrates that this approach can explain the deuteron quadrupole moment very well.

Smashing polarized protons to uncover spin and other secrets | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
If you want to unravel the secrets of proton spin, put a 'twist' in your colliding proton beams. This technique, tried and perfected at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)—a particle collider and U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory—orients ...

U.N. does not Expect Cancer Increase due to Fukushima Radiation | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
With little media coverage and even less fanfare, the United Nations released a report in April that dispelled one of the most popular myths regarding the 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdown. The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) said in a report it did not expect “significant changes” in future cancer rates that could be attributed to radiation exposure from the reactor meltdowns. “The doses to the general public, both those incurred during the first y
