IceCube Neutrino Observatory Explores Origin of Cosmic Rays

In a paper published in the journal Nature, scientists using data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory describe a search for neutrinos emitted from 300 gamma ray bursts. The study's findings contradict 15 years of predictions and challenge one of the leading theories for the origin of the highest energy cosmic rays.

Scientists Score Another Victory Over Uncertainty in Quantum Physics Measurements

Uncertainty affects the accuracy with which measurements can be made in quantum physics. To reduce this uncertainty, physicists have learned to "squeeze" certain measurements. Researchers are now reporting a new type of measurement that can be squeezed to improve precision.
