The international collaboration that includes the University of Utah aims to construct a 3-D map of the universe in more detail than ever before.
Learn how understanding black holes can help us understand ourselves.
LEDs led to the high-definition viewing experience we’ve come to expect from our screens. A new type of LED that utilizes spintronics could take displays to the next level.
U alum Thomas Stucky, a KBRwyle engineer at NASA’s Ames Research Center, talked about NASA’s mission to search for life on Mars—and prepare for future human explorers.
The new project includes hands-on and virtual heat conduction experiments.
A new study suggests that as temperatures get cooler, particles on surfaces will remain infectious longer.
For the first time in nearly 50 years, stellar intensity interferometry has been used to take the measure of the stars.
The results are measurements of more than 2 million galaxies and quasars covering 11 billion years of cosmic time.
The new technique can track molecules in real time, at room temperature, with impressive resolution.
