World’s most powerful X-ray laser now fires a million bursts per second

The world’s most powerful X-ray laser is ready for operation after a massive overhaul. A powerful upgrade to Stanford’s Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), LCLS-II uses temperatures colder than deep space to accelerate electrons to near light-speed and… Continue reading World’s most powerful X-ray laser now fires a million bursts per second

“Dark matter asteroids” could be spotted colliding with stars

Although it should be extremely common in the universe, dark matter has proven tricky to detect. Now researchers have proposed an intriguing new method to spot it – looking for shock waves as dark matter “asteroids” collide with stars.Continue ReadingC… Continue reading “Dark matter asteroids” could be spotted colliding with stars

“Quantum tornadoes” mark crossover from classical to quantum physics

The universe is governed by two sets of seemingly incompatible laws of physics – there’s the classical physics we’re used to on our scale, and the spooky world of quantum physics on the atomic scale. MIT physicists have now observed the moment atoms sw… Continue reading “Quantum tornadoes” mark crossover from classical to quantum physics
