Four new elements in the periodic table

Four new elements in the periodic table

The periodic table of elements has now been expanded by four new additions. The international chemical union IUPAC have now officially consented to the introduction of the elements 113, 115, 117 and 118. Various research teams...

“We’re finally on the right path to genuine gravitational wave astronomy!”

Scientists have made a breakthrough involving great expectations for a new access to the universe.

A new window to the universe

A new window to the universe

The earth is being incessantly bombarded by a stream of energy-rich particles from the universe. By means of a new observatory a group of astrophysicists aims at tracking down the cosmic events that trigger this particle storm.

Under extreme pressure

Under extreme pressure

Osmium is one tough customer. Instead of crumbling or caving in, the metal stayed intact when research scientists at the University of Bayreuth and the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY applied pressure to it.

The particle detective

With the aid of the so-called Higgs bosons, physicist Sarah Heim is trying to find those particles which make up the mysterious dark matter in outer space.

The fastest code in the field of laser-plasma physics

The fastest code in the field of laser-plasma physics

Ultra fast, scalable and free of charge – what began as a “youth conducts research” project, is today one of the most powerful programme codes for calculations.

The smallest dunes

The smallest dunes

It’s like a scene from a science-fiction film: A UFO shoots destructive beams and bores deep craters into the landscape. After the invasion, the world is a different place – it consists of well-ordered, long dunes.

Lord of the rings

As a child, Jens Stadlmann enjoyed tinkering with bicycles, and today he takes care of the particle-accelerator facilities at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research in Darmstadt.

What is supersymmetry?

Q&A

What is supersymmetry?

Using huge particle accelerators, physicists are searching for supersymmetry. Their existence could help us to understand the composition of dark matter. But is it possible for something to be more symmetrical than symmetrical?

In Benjamin Button’s Universe

Theory

In Benjamin Button’s Universe

Time runs forward. But it doesn’t necessarily have to, claim the physicists. Perhaps there is a second universe , where it runs backwards.
