Sorry. I removed the duplicate link. It was duplicated in the feed that I use to generate these posts.

No need to apologize. I figured the slipped cog was not yours. And it gave me an excuse to link to the funny T shirt.

Probably the AMC channel is making a series about it.

New method for cooling charged particles has been developed


A two penning trap system is able to "cool-down" charged particles such as Antiprotons using laser-cooled beryllium ions. This effect happens at a maximum distance from about 9 cm; while other methods used at the moment require 0,1 millimeters or less.

This will also allow a much closer analysing from Anti-protons as they can be cooled down to 1K; if not <1K.





It might not look like a major breakthrough, but its a large step forward regardless.

Indeed. But I'ld guess that those changes to brain cell DNA will not make their way to the testicles/ovaries to become inheritable? ;-) Nonetheless, the view that behavior and environment have an impact on evolution seems to find more followers lately.
