This spring, amidst the pandemic, testing wrapped up at the PIP-II Injector Test Facility or PIP2IT, a culmination of over eight years of work.
The research could lead to a better understanding of extreme astrophysical environments and the development of compact high-energy radiation sources.
This natural occurrence - flagging - comes from the Brood X cicadas emerging after 17 years in the ground and depositing eggs in a tree stem.
Scientists have created a new ink for 3D printing of durable materials, including prosthetics and space travel devices from a rare mineral.
