NASA’s heavy metal Psyche asteroid journey is set for October

NASA is on track to launch its mission to asteroid Psyche later this year in October, after correcting several project management issues that led to its initial delay. Psyche was originally scheduled to launch in August 2022 and cost about $1 billion, but was pushed back when engineers delivered the flight guidance, navigation and control… Read More »

Secrets of the hypernuclei flux: first observations at the relativistic heavy ion collider

Physicists at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) have made the first observation of the directed flow of hypernuclei, rare nuclei containing at least one hyperon, in particle collisions. Hyperons, which contain a strange quark, are thought to be abundant in neutron stars, one of the densest objects in the universe. By simulating these conditions… Read More »
