Search and Discovery
A short, single-stranded nucleic acid chain attached to the tip of an atomic force microscope can locate its complement with high resolution and specificity.
An analysis of their orbits and masses indicates that the pair is a plausible supernova progenitor.
Issues and Events
Reduced running times have scientists worried about their experiments, from student theses to international collaborations.
The boon to the state’s education and economy will be amplified if the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility is realized.
The Department of Energy and NSF would get healthy increases while basic research programs at the Department of Defense and NASA would see reductions.
Modern transmission electron microscopes can image individual atoms and molecules. But to unlock new science, the next generation of instruments must look beyond just higher spatial resolution.
The heaviest of nature’s elementary particles plays an outsized role in many fundamental processes. But because the top quark is so massive, it eluded experimental detection for nearly two decades.
