Understanding Formation of r-Process Elements Could Shed Light on Galaxy Formation

Understanding Formation of r-Process Elements Could Shed Light on Galaxy Formation

The origin of many of the most precious elements on the periodic table, such as gold, silver and platinum, has perplexed scientists for more than six decades. Now a recent study has an answer, evocatively conveyed in the faint starlight from a distant dwarf galaxy. [More]
Physicists Explore Photon-Photon Elastic Collisions

Physicists Explore Photon-Photon Elastic Collisions

When one snooker ball hits another, both spring away from each other in an elastic manner. In the case of two photons a similar process – the elastic collision – has never been observed. Physicists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences have shown, however, that such a process does not only occur, but even could soon be registered in heavy ion collisions at the LHC accelerator.
