Smallest Known Galaxy with a Supermassive Black Hole

A University of Utah astronomer and his colleagues discovered that an ultracompact dwarf galaxy harbors a supermassive black hole – the smallest galaxy known to contain such a massive light-sucking object. The finding suggests huge black holes may be more common than previously believed

Turning the Moon into a cosmic ray detector

Scientists from the University of Southampton are to turn the Moon into a giant particle detector to help understand the origin of Ultra-High-Energy cosmic rays - the most energetic particles in the Universe

Carolina’s Laura Mersini-Houghton shows that black holes do not exist

Black holes have long captured the public imagination and been the subject of popular culture, from Star Trek to Hollywood. They are the ultimate unknown – the blackest and most dense objects in the universe that do not even let light escape. And as if they

The Coolest Known White Dwarf: A Diamond in the Sky?

A team of astronomers has identified possibly the coldest, faintest white dwarf star ever detected. This ancient stellar remnant is so cool that its carbon has crystallized, forming

PPPL scientists take key step toward solving a major astrophysical mystery

Magnetic reconnection in the Earth and sun's atmospheres can trigger geomagnetic storms that disrupt cell phone service, damage satellites and blackout power grids. Understanding how reconnection transforms magnetic energy into

An innovative solution for confocal Super Resolution

3D confocal laser scanning microscopy with the FluoView FV1200 achieves a vastly improved lateral and axial resolution compared to standard widefield, but is still limited by the diffraction limit of light. In certain settings images can therefore suffer from poor contrast, even following post-acquisition processing. This is where Super Resolution microscopy comes into play, breaking the diffraction limit of light and enhancing

Physicists 'freeze time' to manipulate spin information in graphene

Researchers from the FOM Foundation and University of Groningen have found a way to preserve spin information for much longer than previously possible. They isolated the spin information from the influence of the outside world in a nanoscale graphene device, in which they can easily manipulate the information with electric fields. This feature makes their device an
