## Scientists Have No Idea Why This Enriched Uranium Particle Was Floating Above Alaska

On August 3, 2016, seven kilometers above Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, a research plane captured something mysterious: an atmospheric aerosol particle enriched with the kind of uranium used in nuclear fuel and bombs.

## First Determination of the Level Structure of an sd-Shell Hypernucleus, Λ19F

We report on the first observation of $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ rays emitted from an $sd$-shell hypernucleus, $_{\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Lambda}}}^{19}\mathrm{F}$. The energy spacing between the ground state doublet, $1/{2}^{+}$ and $3/{2}^{+}$ states, of $_{\mathrm{\ensuremath{\Lambda}}}^{19}\mathrm{F}$ is determined to be $315.5\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}0.4(\mathrm{stat}{)}_{\ensuremath{-}0.5}^{+0.6}(\mathrm{syst})\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{keV}$ by measuring the $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray energy of the $M1(3/{2}^{+}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}1/{2}^{+})$ transition. In addition, three $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray peaks are observed and assigned as $E2(5/{2}^{+}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}1/{2}^{+})$, $E1(1/{2}^{\ensuremath{-}}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}1/{2}^{+})$, and $E1(1/{2}^{\ensuremath{-}}\ensuremath{\rightarrow}3/{2}^{+})$ transitions. The excitation energies of the $5/{2}^{+}$ and $1/{2}^{\ensuremath{-}}$ states are determined to be $895.2\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}0.3(\mathrm{stat})\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}0.5(\mathrm{syst})$ and $1265.6\ifmmode\pm\else\textpm\fi{}1.2(\mathrm{stat}{)}_{\ensuremath{-}0.5}^{+0.7}(\mathrm{syst})\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{keV}$, respectively. It is found that the ground state doublet spacing is well described by theoretical models based on existing $s$- and $p$-shell hypernuclear data.

## Dogs of Chernobyl –

It's a common misconception that the Chernobyl Nuclear Power plant is devoid of life--in fact there are over 3,500 people each day who work among over 250 stray dogs that roam the grounds.   These dogs can be found in nearly every area of the Chernobyl site, including controlled, indoor areas. The workers have…
