Advancing Basic Science for Humanity
A new study confirms what scientists have long suspected: Cosmic rays – energetic particles that pelt Earth from all directions – are born in the violent aftermath of supernovas, exploding stars throughout the galaxy.
With a new 51 million investment, TU Delft and Leiden University will be exploring the frontiers of the ‘NanoFront’.
Researchers have peered back to the era of the first stars and galaxies, and found matter with no discernible trace of heavy elements.
A state-of-the-art simulations demonstrates that gravity isn’t the sole arbiter of a spinning black hole’s behavior.
Winning work appeared in The New York Times, The Seattle Times, Smithsonian Magazine, KQED QUEST and WGBH/NOVA and others.
A team of scientists have detect the brightest flare ever observed from the black hole in the center of the Milky Way.
Astronomers using data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have made the most accurate measurement of starlight in the universe.
Alan Alda visited SLAC as part of a two-day workshop on communicating science hosted by the Kavli Institute for Particle Physics and Astrophysics (KIPAC).
The Kavli Foundation was presented the “Shokumon Award” by the University of Tokyo.
Researchers find evidence that the yellow supergiant star found at the location of supernova SN 2011dh was its progenitor.
