KATRIN cuts the mass estimate for the elusive neutrino in half

University of Washington

At the 2019 Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics conference in Toyama, Japan, leaders from the KATRIN experiment reported Sept. 13 that the estimated range for the rest mass of the neutrino is no larger than 1 electron volt, or eV.

Gemini Observatory Captures Multicolor Image of First-ever Interstellar Comet

Gemini Observatory

The first-ever comet from beyond our Solar System has been successfully imaged by the Gemini Observatory in multiple colors. The image of the newly discovered object, denoted C/2019 Q4 (Borisov), was obtained on the night of 9-10 September using the Gemini Multi-Object Spectrograph on the Gemini North Telescope on Hawaii’s Maunakea.

Sandia experiments at temperature of sun offer solutions to solar model problems

Sandia National Laboratories

The opaqueness of elements to the passage of light blocks heat from the furnaces at the center of the sun from incinerating us. Sandia National Laboratories researchers, experimenting at the temperature of the sun, pjn down just how much energy passes through floating atoms of iron, helping rebuild an important astrophysics theory.

Scientists Measure “Tones” of Black Holes for the First Time

Stony Brook University

A team of scientists including Will Farr, PhD, an astrophysicist at Stony Brook University, has found a way for the first time to detect multiple tones of a black hole ringing like a bell -- something that most astrophysicists thought would not be possible for a decade or more.
