Citizen scientists have provided important help to astronomers exploring the heavens, and now they are invited to take a more hands-on role.
Michelle Thaller will speak at UWM about how discoveries made by largely overlooked women led to our current understanding of dead stars, dark matter and the end of everything.
UWM researchers played an important role as part of an international team that made a scientific breakthrough that could tell us more than ever before about how the very early universe formed.
UWM is a longtime partner on a grant from the National Science Foundation that supports the development of the next generation of X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) – novel instruments used to unmask phenomena that have never before been observed. Since 2009, XFELs have enabled scientists to examine how molecules in the human body and […]
Two UWM researchers and a collaborator using cutting-edge techniques found a previously unclear link between characteristics in male songbirds that attract females, even as those signals differ in different geographical regions.
The work of Daniel Agterberg and others could lead to improvements in the electrical grid and produce next-generation computers that can store far more information.
The new method, which captures action over just a few quadrillionths of a second, sheds light on how proteins work. The study was published in the journal Nature.
On this episode of Curious Campus, UWM’s new podcast about science, discovery and culture, we talk about gravitational waves with Sarah Vigeland, an assistant professor of physics at UW-Milwaukee, and Xavier Siemens, an associate professor of physics at Oregon State University.
On the debut episode of Curious Campus, UWM’s new podcast about science, discovery and culture, we look at Mars exploration with guests Jean Creighton and Darian Dixon.
An international team of astronomers that includes one from UWM has discovered unusual radio signals that fit no currently understood variable radio source and could suggest a new class of stellar object.
