Physicists propose search for fourth neutrino
Physicists know that neutrinos (and antineutrinos) come in three flavors: electron, muon, and tau. In several experiments, researchers have detected each of the neutrino flavors and even watched them “oscillate” back and forth between flavors….
A hot topic: Radioactive decay is key ingredient behind Earth’s heat, research shows
Nearly half of the Earth‘s heat comes from the radioactive decay of materials inside, according to a large international research collaboration that includes a Kansas State University physicist. Glenn Horton-Smith, associate professor of physics, was…
