Supersonic Research Soars to New Speeds

Purdue University researchers have begun construction on a Mach 6 wind tunnel, which when completed will be the fastest and quietest research wind tunnel at any academic institution in the world. Research will focus on how air flows over and around objects that travel faster than the speed of sound.

UNH Astronomers Find Gamma-Ray Flare Activity Near Unusual White Dwarf

University of New Hampshire astronomers say they may have found evidence of never-before-seen gamma-ray flare activity on a white dwarf star. Until now, scientists have only detected similar flaring activity on our own Sun, but this source appears to be a white dwarf, the end-stage in the life of a star.

MU Scientist Works to Cement Formula For Stronger Concrete

For hundreds of years, the Coliseum in Rome has stood as a marker of an era gone by. Yet concrete driveways poured only a few years ago are already developing cracks. Ron Berliner, a scientist at the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center, is determined to find out why.

Researchers Create Best Images Yet Of Jupiter's Auroras

Jupiter, like Earth, has auroras at its poles. Thanks to new instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope and a specially designed filter, University of Michigan astrophysicists have produced the best images yet of this planetary phenomenon---pictures which should give researchers a much better understanding of Jupiter and its moons.
