Particle accelerator on a microchip

The project is based on advances in nano-photonics, the art of creating and using nano structures to generate and manipulate different kinds of light. A laser using visible or infrared light is used to accelerate the electrically charged elementary particles, rather than the radio-frequency


New exoplanet in our neighborhood

The new planet, named GJ 1132b, is Earth-sized and rocky, orbiting a small star located a mere 39 light-years from Earth, making it the closest Earth-sized exoplanet yet discovered

UAH professor’s laser-based space energy system generates a patent

The system could be configured to provide energy to other spacecraft or for application of the delivered energy to maximally efficient redirection of an asteroid or related object that is discovered to be on a collision course with Earth

UW scientists are the first to simulate 3-D exotic clouds on an exoplanet

Scientists have catalogued nearly 2,000 exoplanets around stars near and far. While most of these are giant and inhospitable, improved techniques and spacecraft have uncovered increasingly smaller worlds. The day may soon come when astrophysicists announce

Shock waves at Saturn could reveal secrets of exploding stars

The Cassini space probe has detected unusually strong shock waves near Saturn, similar to those driven by supernovae.

Astronomical survey reveals spectacular galaxy halos

A study of spiral galaxies seen edge-on has revealed that halos of cosmic rays and magnetic fields above and below the

NASA Telescopes Find Galaxy Cluster with Vibrant Heart

Astronomers have discovered a rare beast of a galaxy cluster whose heart is bursting with new stars. The unexpected find, made with the help of NASA's Spitzer and Hubble space telescopes, suggests that behemoth galaxies at the cores of these
