Taming the data deluge

An oncoming tsunami of data threatens to overwhelm huge data-rich research projects on such areas that range from the tiny neutrino to an exploding supernova, as well as the mysteries deep within the brain.  When LIGO picks up a gravitational-wave signal from a distant collision of black holes and neutron stars, a clock starts ticking […]

3 Questions: Investigating a long-standing neutrino mystery

Neutrinos are one of the most mysterious members of the Standard Model, a framework for describing fundamental forces and particles in nature. While they are among the most abundant known particles in the universe, they interact very rarely with matter, making their detection a challenging experimental feat. One of the long-standing puzzles in neutrino physics […]

Scientists Are Hunting for ‘Ghost’ Particles from Space Under the South Pole

ABSTRACT breaks down mind-bending scientific research, future tech, new discoveries, and major breakthroughs. Deep under the ice of the South Pole, an observatory made of thousands of threaded sensors is hunting for ghostly particles called neutrinos, which are forged by some of the most energetic processes in the universe. Since it first began operations a […]
