A Great Physics Professor Is A Rare Thing! Physics course like mathematics and maybe accounting can be either fun or downright boring right? The difference can make the class drag on and seem to never end or make time fly! Interesting that a physics lecture can have an impact on the pereption of time.

Research into the particles produced by nuclear reactors. An international team that includes researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has captured the most precise (and puzzling)energy measurements yet of ghostly particles called reactor antineutrinos produced at a nuclear power complex in China.

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider is one of only two operating heavy-ion colliders, and the only spin-polarized proton collider ever built. Located at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York, and used by an international team of researchers, it is the only operating particle collider in the US.

A Fully Upgraded Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Comes Online. A particle accelerator is a machine that uses electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to high speeds and to contain them in well-defined beams. The accelerator is also known as the “atom smasher” or “super collider “. ( personally, I like atom smasher..)
