Playing with the wonder materials
Playing with the wonder materials
The diameter of a hair, but a hundred thousand times thinner - the products made by Dr. Ashish Arora and his colleagues in the laboratories of the Institute of Physics are difficult to imagine for outsiders. The materials they deal with on a daily basis hold a world record because they consist of a single layer of atoms, the smallest building blocks of nature.

Gasification goes green
Rice's low-temp photocatalyst could slash the carbon footprint for syngas Rice University engineers have created a light-powered nanoparticle that could shrink the carbon footprint of a major segment of the chemical industry. The particle, tiny spheres of copper dotted with single atoms of ruthenium, is the key component in a green process for making syngas, or synthesis gas, valuable chemical feedstock that's used to make fuels, fertilizer and many other products.

Holey Corona! Sun-grazing spacecraft pries solar secrets loose
In December 2019 physicists wowed the solar physics world with the first results from NASA's Parker Solar Probe spacecraft, which has swooped closer to the sun than any other human-made object-just half Mercury's distance. Launched in August 2018, the probe seeks to solve the two biggest mysteries of the solar corona.

Simulations Attempt to Reconstruct One of the Most Explosive Events in the Universe: A Neutron Star Merger
Simulations Attempt to Reconstruct One of the Most Explosive Events in the Universe: A Neutron Star Merger
Scientists are getting better at modeling the complex tangle of physics properties at play in one of the most powerful events in the known universe: the merger of two neutron stars. Neutron stars are the fast-spinning, ultradense husks of larger stars that exploded as supernovae. They measure about 12 miles across, and a single teaspoon of neutron star matter weighs as much as 1,125 Golden Gate bridges, or 2,735 Empire State buildings.

Parker Solar Probe’s first discoveries: Odd phenomena in space weather and the solar wind
Last summer, NASA's Parker Solar Probe split the predawn skies in a blaze of light as it headed closer to the sun than any other spacecraft. Named for pioneering University of Chicago astrophysicist Eugene Parker, the probe has now made three of its 24 planned passes through the sun's corona-enough for scientists to announce their first discoveries.  In four papers published Dec.
