Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory turned light into electrons, validating a theory that dates back nearly a century.
Scientists shot protons at a deuterium nucleus to understand what the universe was like mere minutes after it was born.
The particle accelerator came to Chandigarh in India from the US in the 1960s, and was rebuilt with no prior expertise.
Researchers in Germany measured the time it took for a light particle to dislodge two electrons within the same molecule—the fastest event ever recorded.
“I realized that certain things that I thought were impossible for someone my age aren’t impossible,” said Jackson Oswalt, 14.
Just some nefarious sulfur ions, it turns out.
Heavy ions take over for one month only.
