  • Dust on the wind: Study reveals surprising role of dust in mountain ecosystems - 06.12.2017

    Find related stories on NSF's Critical Zone Observatories at this link . Trees growing atop granite in the southern Sierra Nevada Mountains rely on nutrients from windborne dust more than on nutrients from the underlying bedrock. This surprising finding resulted from a study led by University of Wyoming (UW) scientists. The research was funded by the National Science Foundation ...

  • Massive primordial galaxies found in ?halo? of dark matter - 06.12.2017

    Observations of two galaxies made with the National Science Foundation-funded Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) radio telescope suggest that large galaxies formed faster than scientists had previously thought. The two galaxies, first discovered by the South Pole Telescope at NSF's Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica, were massive and star-filled at a time when the cosmos was less than a billion years old. The observation came as a surprise, ... More at https://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=243892&WT.mc_id=USNSF_51&WT.mc_ev=click This is an NSF News item.
  • NSF statement on latest LIGO-Virgo detection of binary black hole merger - 06.12.2017

    Scientists supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced the detection of the merger of two relatively "light" black holes, 7 and 12 times the mass of the sun, respectively, at a distance of about 1 billion light-years. NSF'sLaser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) made the detection in June. LIGO is funded by NSF and operated by the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The black hole ...
