Next-Gen Dark Matter Detector in a Race to Finish LineExternal link

The LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment, which will be built nearly a mile underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in Lead, S.D., is considered one of the best bets yet to determine whether theorized dark matter particles known as WIMPs (weakly interacting massive particles) actually exist.

New Study of Ferroelectrics Offers Roadmap to Multivalued Logic for Neuromorphic ComputingExternal link

A team of researchers from Argonne, the Lille University of Science and Technology and the University of Picardie Jules Verne have laid out a theoretical map to use ferroelectric material to process information using multivalued logic – a leap beyond the simple ones and zeroes that make up our current computing systems that could let us process information much more efficiently.

Scientists Estimate Solar Nebula's LifetimeExternal link

Scientists from MIT, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the National Museum in Rio de Janeiro have estimated the lifetime of the solar nebula — a key stage during which much of the solar system evolution took shape – after analyzing angrites, which are some of the oldest and most pristine of planetary rocks.
