Newswise: How to Build a 3D Map of the Universe – and Why

How to Build a 3D Map of the Universe – and Why

Department of Energy, Office of Science

In the 1980s, Saul Perlmutter at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and his collaborators realized that they could use data about supernovae to research the history of the universe. They expected to see that very distant supernovae appear a bit brighter than they would in an expanding universe that wasn’t slowing in its growth. The data revealed something else entirely.

New Ultra-Miniaturized Scope Less Invasive, Produces Higher Quality Images

Johns Hopkins University

Johns Hopkins engineers have created a new lens-free ultra-miniaturized endoscope, the size of a few human hairs in width, that is less bulky and can produce higher quality images.

Has physics ever been deterministic?

University of Vienna

Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the University of Vienna and the University of Geneva, have proposed a new interpretation of classical physics without real numbers. This new study challenges the traditional view of classical physics as deterministic.In classical physics it is usually assumed that if we know where an object is and its velocity, we can exactly predict where it will go.

Move Over Jules Verne -- Scientists Deploy Ocean Floats to Peer into Earth’s Interior

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

The release of more than 50 floating sensors, called Mobile Earthquake Recording in Marine Areas by Independent Divers (MERMAIDs), is increasing the number of seismic stations around the planet. Scientists will use them to clarify the picture of the massive mantel plume in the lower mantel lying below the South Pacific Ocean. This effort will also establish one of the most comprehensive overviews of seismic activity across the globe. Frederik Simons will discuss this international effort during the marine seismoacoustics session of the 178th ASA Meeting.
