Theorists Publish Highest-Precision Prediction of Muon Magnetic Anomaly

Brookhaven National Laboratory

UPTON, NY—Theoretical physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Brookhaven National Laboratory and their collaborators have just released the most precise prediction of how subatomic particles called muons—heavy cousins of electrons—“wobble” off their path in a powerful magnetic field.

NSF's IceCube Observatory Finds First Evidence of Cosmic Neutrino Source

University of California San Diego

An international team of scientists has found the first evidence of a source of high-energy cosmic neutrinos, subatomic particles that can emerge from their sources and, like cosmological ghosts, pass through the universe unscathed, traveling for billions of light years from the most extreme environments in the universe to Earth.

VLA Gives Tantalizing Clues About Source of Energetic Cosmic Neutrino

National Radio Astronomy Observatory

A single, ghostly subatomic particle that traveled some 4 billion light-years before reaching Earth has helped astronomers pinpoint a likely source of high-energy cosmic rays for the first time. Subsequent observations with the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) have given the scientists some tantalizing clues about how such energetic cosmic rays may be formed at the cores of distant galaxies.

Meet Claire Lee: Particle Physicist and Non-Traditional Science Communicator

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Particle physicist Claire Lee ­­­­­­­­is no stranger to the spotlight. Lee’s performance background and comfort on stage are certainly advantages when it comes to communicating science in front of large audiences. She’s given astronomy lectures, sure, but she’s also performed stand-up comedy routines with fellow researchers. Lee said she’s learned to use her acting, public speaking, and communication skills to convey her excitement for scientific research.
