Scientists Have Overestimated Meteor Sizes

First demonstration of high-pressure metastability mapping with ultrafast X-ray diffraction shows objects aren’t as large as previously thought.


Sam Totorica won the Jack Eddy Posdoctorcal Fellowship

Fellowship overview:

The Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship is sponsored by the NASA Living With a Star program and is designed to train the next generation of researchers in the emerging field of Heliophysics. John "Jack" Eddy (1931-2009) was a pioneering solar researcher, and was honored with the debut of the Jack Eddy Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2009.  The fellowship will support me for postdoctoral research at Princeton University, hosted by Professor Amitava Bhattacharjee.


DOE funding for cryogenics has shown a new path towards high-energy protons

New experiments on the Draco laser (Germany) and the Texas Petawatt have successfully completed indicating high-energy laser produced protons. These experiments are motivated by large-scale 3D particle in cell simulations. The simulations indicate that the interaction of an intense short-pulse laser beam with a cryogenic hydrogen target is capable of producing a proton beam with energies up to 60 MeV.
