## Constraint of the Astrophysical 26Al(p,γ)27Si Destruction Rate at Stellar Temperatures

The Galactic 1.809-MeV $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray signature from the $\ensuremath{\beta}$ decay of $^{26g}\mathrm{Al}$ is a dominant target of $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray astronomy, of which a significant component is understood to originate from massive stars. The $^{26g}\mathrm{Al}(p,\ensuremath{\gamma})^{27}\mathrm{Si}$ reaction is a major destruction pathway for $^{26g}\mathrm{Al}$ at stellar temperatures, but the reaction rate is poorly constrained due to uncertainties in the strengths of low-lying resonances in $^{27}\mathrm{Si}$. The $^{26g}\mathrm{Al}(d,p)^{27}\mathrm{Al}$ reaction has been employed in inverse kinematics to determine the spectroscopic factors, and hence resonance strengths, of proton resonances in $^{27}\mathrm{Si}$ via mirror symmetry. The strength of the 127-keV resonance is found to be a factor of 4 higher than the previously adopted upper limit, and the upper limit for the 68-keV resonance has been reduced by an order of magnitude, considerably constraining the $^{26g}\mathrm{Al}$ destruction rate at stellar temperatures.

## Proposed synchrotron could store supersonic beams of hydrogen atoms

(Phys.org)—With a circumference of 27 km (17 miles), the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) holds the claim of being the largest particle accelerator in the world, but it is far from being the only device of its kind.

## Probing the N=32 Shell Closure below the Magic Proton Number Z=20: Mass Measurements of the Exotic Isotopes 52,53K

The recently confirmed neutron-shell closure at $N=32$ has been investigated for the first time below the magic proton number $Z=20$ with mass measurements of the exotic isotopes $^{52,53}\mathrm{K}$, the latter being the shortest-lived nuclide investigated at the online mass spectrometer ISOLTRAP. The resulting two-neutron separation energies reveal a 3 MeV shell gap at $N=32$, slightly lower than for $^{52}\mathrm{Ca}$, highlighting the doubly magic nature of this nuclide. Skyrme-Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov and ab initio Gorkov-Green function calculations are challenged by the new measurements but reproduce qualitatively the observed shell effect.

## 2 billion-year-old African nuclear reactor proves that Mother Nature still has a few tricks up her sleeve

There has only ever been one natural nuclear reactor found, but study of how it worked, and why, is still informing nuclear decision-making to this very day.
