CU-Boulder part of international team to discover neutrinos can change 'flavors'

June 15, 2011

An international research team led by Japan and including the University of Colorado Boulder may have taken a significant step in discovering why matter trumped antimatter at the time of the Big Bang, helping to create virtually all of the galaxies and stars in the universe.

CU-Boulder to participate in NASA mission to land on an asteroid

May 26, 2011

A University of Colorado Boulder team will be part of a mission selected yesterday by NASA to launch a spacecraft to an asteroid and pluck samples from its surface to better understand the formation of the solar system and perhaps even the first inklings of life.

Gut microbes in humans and other mammals heavily influenced by diet, says new study

May 19, 2011

You are what you eat whether you're a lion, a giraffe or a human -- at least in terms of the bacteria in your gut.

CU, MIT top universities for Department of Energy Early Career Research awards

May 17, 2011

Three University of Colorado Boulder professors will receive five-year, $750,000 grants as part of the U.S. Department of Energy's Early Career Research Program created in 2010 to bolster the nation's scientific workforce with top young researchers

Newly detected chemical in smoke may have serious health implications, says new study

May 16, 2011

Cigarette smoking, burning forests and even cooking fires all release a chemical compound not previously known to exist in significant quantities in smoke and which may have potential human health impacts, says a new study involving the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Colorado Boulder.

CU-Boulder leading study of wind turbine wakes

April 26, 2011

While wind turbines primarily are a source of renewable energy, they also produce wakes of invisible ripples that can affect the atmosphere and influence wind turbines downstream -- an issue being researched in a newly launched study led by the University of Colorado Boulder's Julie Lundquist, assistant professor in the atmospheric and oceanic sciences department.

Final flight of space shuttle Discovery to carry two payloads built by CU-Boulder

February 15, 2011

Following a more than three-month delay due to technical problems, NASA's space shuttle Discovery will make its final flight Feb. 24 from Kennedy Space Center in Florida carrying two University of Colorado Boulder-built biomedical payload devices.

Quantum quirk: JILA scientists pack atoms together to prevent collisions in atomic clock

February 03, 2011

In a paradox typical of the quantum world, JILA scientists have eliminated collisions between atoms in an atomic clock by packing the atoms closer together. The surprising discovery, described in the Feb. 3 issue of Science Express, can boost the performance of experimental atomic clocks made of thousands or tens of thousands of neutral atoms trapped by intersecting laser beams

Warming North Atlantic water tied to heating Arctic, according to new study

January 27, 2011

The temperatures of North Atlantic Ocean water flowing north into the Arctic Ocean adjacent to Greenland -- the warmest water in at least 2,000 years -- are likely related to the amplification of global warming in the Arctic, says a new international study involving the University of Colorado Boulder.

Improved measurements of sun to advance understanding of climate change

January 14, 2011

WASHINGTON —Scientists have taken a major step toward accurately determining the amount of energy that the sun provides to Earth, and how variations in that energy may contribute to climate change.
