Lawrence Livermore Plasma Optic Combines Lasers to Form ‘Superbeam’

For 40 years, the Death Star has remained one of science fiction’s most iconic figures. The image of Alderaan’s destruction at the hands of the Death Star’s superlaser is burned into the memory of millions of fans. But it’s long been argued that the technology utilized by the Death Star could never make the jump from sci-fi into reality – scientific theory says that rather than converging and combining their energy, the beams would just pass through one another. That was true – until now. A team of researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have added a plasma – a charged mixture of ions and free electrons -- to the concept and successfully combined several separate lasers into a superbeam.

Astronomers Detect Colliding Neutron Stars for the First Time

Four Northwestern University astronomers are part of an international research collaboration that is the first to detect the spectacular collision of two neutron stars using both gravitational waves and light. The discovery ushers in an exciting new era in astronomy -- multi-messenger astronomy with gravitational waves -- less than two years after the first detection of gravitational waves opened a new window onto the universe. The astronomers hold leading roles on both sides of discovery, in gravitational-wave astronomy and electromagnetic astronomy.

Radio 'Eyes' Unlocking Secrets of Neutron-Star Collision

When a pair of superdense neutron stars collided and potentially formed a black hole in a galaxy 130 million light-years from Earth, they unleashed not only a train of gravitational waves but also an ongoing torrent of radio waves that are answering some of the biggest questions about the nature of such a cataclysmic event.
