In this thin feature he gets caught up in a siege at his station that goes on far, far too long. 1 hr. 30 R (profanity, violence, nudity) David Hiltbrand
  • Fusing physics, cryptography to solve a nuclear inspection paradox

    Fusing physics, cryptography to solve a nuclear inspection paradox
    The solution to ridding nations of nuclear warheads may come from a simple puzzle involving marbles. That, at least, is what lies at the core of a warhead verification protocol designed by a Princeton University team, published this week in the...

    A behind-the-scenes look at the Higgs boson search in 'Particle Fever'
    It was the biggest experiment in the history of physics, a $10-billion project to find a subatomic particle called the Higgs boson. An army of scientists and engineers spent nearly 30 years designing and building the Large Hadron Collider, a 17-mile...
