Interview with SRF graduate student Sadie Seddon-Stettler and communications assistant Savan DeSouza on the NSF Graduate Research Fellow Award
The newly assembled Fred Young Submillimeter Telescope (FYST), nearly the size of a five-story building, was unveiled April 4 at an event in Xanten, Germany.
Cornell astronomers Michael Niemack and Lisa Kaltenegger provide insight in to what to expect from the total solar eclipse that will pass through the United States on April 8 this year.
Abby Crites, a cosmologist at the Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based ScienceS & Education (CLASSE), who is building telescope cameras to peer at some of the universe’s earliest light ever created, sheds some light on how we can make the most of this celestial phenomenon happening right in our ‘backyard.’
Cornell, in collaboration with other U.S. universities, has been awarded $25 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for another five years of research at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland.
In the realm of particle physics, researchers confront fundamental symmetries, the nature of mass, the dimensionality of space, and the cosmological origins of the universe.
Wilson Laboratory, which houses the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source, has tapped into the university’s Lake Source Cooling system, which draws cold water from the depths of Cayuga Lake to remove heat from the district chilled water loop that cools the majority of Cornell facilities.
The newly upgraded Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory successfully produced its first X-rays Sept. 14, and researchers around the world are already lined up to kick off an ambitious science program.
Each year, we interview a few of our CHESS summer students about their projects and aspirations. Check out the student profiles below!
