Advancing particle acceleration for the future - an interview with accelerator physicist Marlene Turner

Now imagine a technology with a superior acceleration gradient that can achieve high collision energies with less size and lower cost.

A real world check on climate model calculations of atmospheric radiative forcing – Interview with Chris Rentsch

Computer climate models make projections of the future using the best assumptions and calculations of how the climate system works. But relying on them requires that we check them against the best real world data available.

The fun and science of blacklight

Blacklight is special for two main reasons: The ultraviolet light is high enough in energy to excite electrons in the reactive material, making that material glow, and it minimizes visible light that would wash out or reduce the visibility of that glow.
