Science researchers across Europe sign open letter condemning the Trump administration for its limitations on the open exchange of people and ideas
EuroScience, the non-profit grassroots association of researchers in Europe, has sent the politicians of Europe an open letter on behalf of 46 leading science organisations highlighting the negative impact of the ongoing policy reorientation under President Donald Trump and his administration on future scientific progress.
Quantum physics examines the physical behaviour of objects at minute scales. In this domain, interactions between atoms and subatomic particles determine the macroscopic behaviour of systems like solid-state materials. Through understanding and manipulating quantum mechanical phenomena such as magnetism and superconductivity, researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology are seeking to unlock their potential for use in modern disciplines such as spintronics
The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) gravitational wave announcement awaits corroborating observation. Using Open Science Grid (OSG) computing resources, they looked to the Dark Energy Camera images for visual evidence of the cosmic collision they detected.
