Short-lived 244Pu points to compact binary mergers as sites for heavy r-process nucleosynthesis

Short-lived 244Pu points to compact binary mergers as sites for heavy r-process nucleosynthesis | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Stars could produce our heavy elements through a rapid neutron-capture process during a supernova or merger of binary stars, but which is it? A study of 244Pu reveals that a rare event with a high yield is more likely, favouring mergers.

RHIC particle smashups find that shape matters

RHIC particle smashups find that shape matters | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Peering into the seething soup of primordial matter created in particle collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)-an "atom smasher" dedicated to nuclear physics research at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory-scientists have come to a new understanding of how particles are produced in these collisions. This understanding represents a paradigm shift consistent with the presence of a saturated state of gluons, super-dense fields of the glue-like particles

HIB@LNS (14-15 December 2015)

HIB@LNS (14-15 December 2015) | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The recent proposal to upgrade the LNS Superconducting cyclotron by increasing the beam intensity of two orders of magnitude with respect to the existing facility represents an important progress in the field of Heavy Ion reactions at Fermi energy with both stable and exotic beams and related applications.



It is expected that different topics will benefit of this progress. Among these, it is important to mention the nuclear matrix element measurements

Higher Levels of Fukushima Cesium Detected Offshore

Scientists monitoring the spread of radiation in the ocean from the Fukushima nuclear accident report finding an increased number of contaminated sites off the US West Coast, along with the highest detection level to date, from a sample collected about 1,600 miles west of San Francisco. The level of cesium in the sample is 50 percent higher than other samples collected, but is still more than 500 times lower than US government safety limits for drinking water and well below limits of co

Nuclear astrophysics: Deep-sea diving for stellar debris

Nuclear astrophysics: Deep-sea diving for stellar debris | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it

Deep-sea sediments reveal the production sites of the heaviest chemical elements in the Universe to be neutron star mergers -rare events that eject large amounts of mass- and not core-collapse supernovae.

The Cramps - Uranium Rock (with lyrics)

Theo J. Mertzimekis's insight:

Just a little entertainment break.

I especially like the lyrics part talking about the Geiger counter.

Enjoy!
