Scientists get first glimpse of black hole eating star, ejecting high-speed flare
An international team of astrophysicists led by a Johns Hopkins University scientist has for the first time witnessed a star being swallowed by a black hole and ejecting a flare of matter moving at nearly the speed of light.  View News Article (2015-11-30)

Strange quantum phenomenon achieved at room temperature in semiconductor wafers
Entanglement is one of the strangest phenomena predicted by quantum mechanics, the theory that underlies most of modern physics. It says that two particles can be so inextricably connected that the state of one particle can instantly influence the state of the other, no matter how far apart they are.  View News Article (2015-11-23)

Ground-breaking research could challenge underlying principles of physics
An international team of physicists has published ground-breaking research on the decay of subatomic particles called kaons - which could change how scientists understand the formation of the universe.  View News Article (2015-11-23)

Hallucinations linked to differences in brain structure
People diagnosed with schizophrenia who are prone to hallucinations are likely to have structural differences in a key region of the brain compared to both healthy individuals and people diagnosed with schizophrenia who do not hallucinate, according to research published today. View News Article (2015-11-17)

Discovery measures 'heartbeats' of distant galaxy's stars
In many ways stars are like living beings. They're born; they live; they die. And they even have a heartbeat. Using a novel technique, astronomers have detected thousands of stellar "pulses" in the galaxy Messier 87 (M87). Their measurements offer a new way of determining a galaxy's age. View News Article (2015-11-17)

NASA's Swift spots its thousandth gamma-ray burst
NASA's Swift spacecraft has detected its 1,000th gamma-ray burst (GRB). GRBs are the most powerful explosions in the universe, typically associated with the collapse of a massive star and the birth of a black hole. View News Article (2015-11-09)

Hubble uncovers the fading cinders of some of our galaxy's earliest homesteaders
Using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to conduct a "cosmic archaeological dig" at the very heart of our Milky Way galaxy, astronomers have uncovered the blueprints of our galaxy's early construction phase. View News Article (2015-11-06)

Image release: Protostar growth spurts
Astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) have discovered an adolescent protostar that is undergoing a rapid-fire succession of growth spurts.  View News Article (2015-11-05)

Electrochemical etching down to one-monolayer towards high-Tc superconductivity
Iron selenide (FeSe) is an attracting superconducting material since the superconducting transition temperature (Tc) is enhanced from 8 K in bulk form toward 65 K in one-monolayer form.  View News Article (2015-11-05)

Magnetic hide and seek
For the first time, astrophysicists are able to determine the presence of strong magnetic fields deep inside pulsating giant stars. Magnetic fields have important consequences in all stages of stellar evolution, from a star's formation to its demise. View News Article (2015-10-23)
