Neutrinos from a nearby galaxy reveal the secrets of a black hole

Neutrinos from a nearby galaxy reveal the secrets of a black hole

In the zoo of subatomic particles, neutrinos are strange beasts. Unlike more familiar particles such as electrons and protons, ghostly neutrinos barely interact with normal matter: they can fly through a planet as if it isn’t even there. This makes them extremely difficult to detect and, for neutrinos from cosmic objects in the sky, even …

Studying muonium to reveal new physics beyond the Standard Model

Studying muonium to reveal new physics beyond the Standard Model

Muonium frequency sweep at 22.5 W in the range of 200 to 800 MHz. The adjusted black line is with, the gray line without the 3Scontribution. The error bars correspond to the statistical error of counting. The colored areas represent the underlying contributions of 2S−2P1/2 transitions, namely 583 MHz (blue), 1140 MHz (orange), 1326 MHz …

The Replication Crisis: Researchers Reveal a Hidden Universe of Uncertainty

The Replication Crisis: Researchers Reveal a Hidden Universe of Uncertainty

Wide variation in results from 73 teams testing the same hypothesis with the same data. The distribution of estimated AMEs across all converged models (n=1,253) includes negative (yellow; in the direction predicted by the given hypothesis the teams were testing), non-zero (grey), or positive (blue) results. using a 95% CI. MEAs are xy-normalized. The y-axis …

A particle accelerator that just ignited could reveal rare forms of matter

A particle accelerator that just ignited could reveal rare forms of matter

A few hundred yards from where we are sitting is a large metal chamber devoid of air and covered with the cables needed to control the instruments within. A particle beam silently passes through the interior of the chamber at about half the speed of light until it strikes a piece of solid material, resulting …
