  1. HAWC Gamma-ray Observatory reveals new look at the very-high-energy skyRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 17, 2016 | EurekAlert!

    UMD physicists pioneered development of observatory that has located new high-energy sources in the universe and provided more detail on known sources in first year of full operation IMAGE: HAWC observations show that a previously known gamma ray source in the Milky Way galaxy, TeV J1930+188, which is probably due to a pulsar wind nebula, is far more complicated... view more The United States and Mexico constructed the High Altitude Water Cherenkov Gamma-ray Observatory to observe some of the most energetic phenomena in the known universe--the aftermath when massive stars die, glowing clouds of electrons around rapidly spinning neutron stars, and supermassive black holes devouring matter and spitting out powerful jets of particles.

    IMAGE: During geomagnetic storms, the empty region between the two belts can fill in completely with lower-energy electrons. Traditionally, scientists thought this slot region filled in only during the most extreme... view more About 600 miles from Earth's surface is the first of two donut-shaped electron swarms, known as the Van Allen Belts, or the radiation belts.


  4. New model more accurately tracks gases for underground nuclear explosion detectionRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 16, 2015 | EurekAlert!

    LOS ALAMOS, N.M., December 17, 2015--Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have developed a new, more thorough method for detecting underground nuclear explosions by coupling two fundamental elements--seismic models with gas-flow models--to create a more complete picture of how an explosion's evidence seep to the surface. Their findings will appear in today's edition of the journal Nature's Scientific Reports in a paper titled, "Radionuclide Gas Transport through Nuclear Explosion-Generated Fracture Networks."
