Dutch chemist and Nobel laureate Bernard Feringa will give a public lecture at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Friday, Sept. 29, on how he made important components for powering future nanomachines and nanorobots.
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee astronomer David Kaplan and colleagues have begun a radio search for the magnetic fields of planets orbiting distant stars. The team reported its initial findings in “A search for circularly polarized emission from young exoplanets,” published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The astronomers conducted a search of star […]
The UW System Board of Regents is honoring Jean Creighton, director of the Manfred Olson Planetarium, for spreading knowledge of space to thousands of children and adults in Wisconsin.
This third detection comes less than two years after UWM scientists and LIGO colleagues around the world confirmed a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity.
