  • Chile wins race to cohost gamma ray telescopes

    Chile is set to jointly host the world’s largest array of gamma ray telescopes.   About 100 dishes are now planned to go in the Atacama Desert — close to the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Paranal — to form the southern hemisphere part of the US$330 million Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). The northern hemisphere component of around 20 dishes ...

  • Results of Surface Radiation Screening Suggest Bridgeton Municipal Athletic Complex Remains Suitable for Public Use

    Results of a scientific surface gamma radiation screening of the Bridgeton Municipal Athletic Complex (BMAC) in Bridgeton, Mo., suggest the multi-purpose outdoor recreational facility remains suitable for public use, EPA Region 7 announced today. “EPA’s analysis of data collected from more than 58,000 surface points across BMAC suggests no levels of gamma radiation that would pose ...

  • Working together to take the pulse of the universe

    The team are using the world-class facilities at Parkes, in combination with NASA’ s Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope, to understand how these small spinning stars make their beams of radiation. The project has tracked down 25 ultrafast ‘millisecond’ pulsars in just two years – the same number discovered in the previous 20 years. “This has been a hugely productive ...

  • Are TGFs hazardous to air travelers?

    Instruments scanning outer space for cataclysmic explosions called gamma-ray bursts are detecting intense flashes of gamma-ray energy right here in the friendly skies of Earth. These terrestrial gamma-ray flashes, or TGFs, blast through thunderstorms close to the altitude where commercial airliners fly. In fact, they could be too close for comfort. In a recent study,* scientists estimated that ...

  • Accelerators for America’s future: An exercise in integration

    The first thing the word accelerator brings to mind is often a high-energy machine like Fermilab’s Tevatron or CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. But accelerators are ubiquitous in modern life; they can be found everywhere from factories and hospitals to basic research labs and national security facilities. “For the past 30 years there have been sporadic attempts to integrate accelerator development ...

  • Laboratory Impex Systems launch HC833 Hot-Cell Interlock Monitor

    Ideal for both the Nuclear Industry and Medical environments, Laboratory Impex Systems (LIS) introduce HC833: this self-contained gamma monitoring system, for use within shielded areas such as hot-cells and glove-boxes, features a large analogue scale to give users an immediate and clear visual indicator of the radiation level within the cell.
