CMU’s Walker To Shine Light on Famous Experiment During Eclipse - News - Carnegie Mellon University
For the first time in nearly a century, a solar eclipse will be visible across the entire United States. The total solar eclipse provides a unique opportunity for North American scientists. Matthew Walker, assistant professor of physics at Carnegie Mellon University, will travel to Nashville, Tennessee, to view the eclipse and attempt to repeat a famous experiment.

Tidally locked exoplanets may be more common than previously thought
Tidally locked exoplanets may be more common than previously thought
Many exoplanets to be found by coming high-powered telescopes will probably be tidally locked - with one side permanently facing their host star - according to new research by astronomer Rory Barnes of the University of Washington. Barnes, a UW assistant professor of astronomy and astrobiology, arrived at the finding by questioning the long-held assumption that only those stars that are much smaller and dimmer than the sun could host orbiting planets that were in synchronous orbit, or tidally locked, as the moon is with the Earth.

Lunar dynamo’s lifetime extended by at least 1 billion years
New evidence from ancient lunar rocks suggests that an active dynamo once churned within the molten metallic core of the moon, generating a magnetic field that lasted at least 1 billion years longer than previously thought. Dynamos are natural generators of magnetic fields around terrestrial bodies, and are powered by†the churning of conducting fluids within many stars and planets.

New clue to solving the mystery of the sun’s hot atmosphere
The elemental composition of the Sun's hot atmosphere known as the 'corona' is strongly linked to the 11-year solar magnetic activity cycle, a team of scientists from UCL, George Mason University and Naval Research Laboratory has revealed for the first time.† The study, published and funded by the NASA Hinode program, shows that an increase in magnetic activity goes hand in hand with an increase of certain elements, such as Iron, in the solar corona.

World’s smallest neutrino detector observes elusive interactions of particles | UChicago News
In 1974, a Fermilab physicist predicted a new way for ghostly particles called neutrinos to interact with matter. More than four decades later, a UChicago-led team of physicists built the world's smallest neutrino detector to observe the elusive interaction for the first time. Neutrinos are a challenge to study because their interactions with matter are so rare.
