China's Nuclear Fusion Machine Just Smashed Germany's Hydrogen Plasma Record

Just last week, we reported that Germany’s revolutionary nuclear fusion machine managed to heat hydrogen gas to 80 million degrees Celsius, and sustain a cloud of hydrogen plasma for a quarter of a second. This was a huge milestone in the decade

Detecting neutrinos, physicists look into the heart of the Sun

Using one of the most sensitive neutrino detectors on the planet, an international team of physicists including Andrea Pocar, Laura Cadonati and doctoral student Keith Otis at the University of Massachusetts Amherst report in the current issue of Nature that for the first time they have directly detected neutrinos created by the “keystone” proton-proton (pp) fusion process going on at the sun’s core.

New suspect identified in supernova explosion

New results have revealed a rare example of a type Ia supernova in which a dead star “fed” off an aging star like a cosmic zombie, triggering a blast.
