PPPL New insights into the science of fusion energy that powers the sun and stars

Princeton, NJ:  By John Greenwald - Throughout 2017 researchers at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have produced new insights into the science of fusion energy that powers the sun and stars and the physics of plasma, the hot, charged state of matter that consists of electrons and atomic nuclei, or ions, and makes up 99 percent of the visible universe. The research advances the development of fusion as a safe, clean and plentiful source of power, produced in doughnut-shaped facilities called tokamaks, and explores the diverse aspects and applications of plasma. The findings range from a…

Health – New model projects an increase in dust storms in the US

Princeton, NJ: Research at Princeton. By Pooja Makhijani for the Office of Communications Could the storms that once engulfed the Great Plains in clouds of black dust in the 1930's once again wreak havoc in the A new statistical model developed by researchers at Princeton University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that climate change will amplify dust activity in parts of the in the latter half of the 21st century, which may lead to the increased frequency of spectacular dust storms that have far-reaching impacts on public health and infrastructure. The model, detailed in a study published July 17…

Climate change to alter global pattern of mild weather

Princeton, NJ: Scientists from Princeton University and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have produced the first global analysis of how climate change may affect the frequency and location of mild-weather days — and it may be soon. In a report published Jan. 18 in the journal Climatic Change, the researchers define mild weather as temperatures between 64 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit (18 and 30 degrees Celsius); less than inches (1 mm) of rain; and a dew point below 68 degrees F (20 degrees Celsius), which indicates low humidity. NOAA funded the work. Within the next 20 years, the…

Legal Battle Continues Over Princeton Revolutionary War Battlefield

Princeton, NJ: Historical activists are refusing to surrender in their efforts to prevent the development of a privately owned portion of a Revolutionary War battlefield in New Jersey. The Princeton Battlefield Society is hoping to halt the plans of the Institute of Advanced Study, which is starting work to construct faculty housing. They want to preserve the site where George Washington's troops defeated the British at the Battle of Princeton in January 1777, and remain hopeful the institute will agree Share More:  By BRUCE SHIPKOWSKI, ASSOCIATED PRESS,  PRINCETON, — Dec 13, 2015

High school student Wins $250,000 for explaining Einstein’s Theory

Ohio high school senior Ryan Chester became the inaugural winner of a new college scholarship on Sunday night, winning $250,000 for his 7-minute film that uses simple props and hand-drawn graphics to explain Einstein’s special theory of relativity. Besides winning that money for himself, Chester also won $100,000 for a new science lab at his school in the Cleveland suburbs, North Royalton High, social share :
