How Airbus Hopes To Launch The First Zero-Emission Plane By 2035

Airbus will focus on cryogenic hydrogen fuel for its ZEROe airplanes. All three proposed aircraft designs use two Hydrogen Turbofan Engines fueled by a liquid hydrogen storage & distribution system. To achieve this, airbus will develop a cost-effective manufacturing program for the cryogenic tanks and cryogenic distribution equipment. Read more via Simple Flying

Scientists assemble final detector of Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Neutrino Program

Fermilab is completing its Short-Baseline Near Detector (SBND), one of three detectors designed to study neutrino oscillations. The three detectors will evaluate an intense neutrino beam. Scientists expect to see neutrinos shift between three known types and possibly find a fourth. SBND will be suspended in a tank of liquid argon. When the neutrinos collide with an argon atom, the detector will record the movement of light and charged particles. Read more via Phys Org

Behind the familiar physics of alien rain

Liquid helium may fall from the sky on Jupiter, liquid methane rains down on the lakes of Saturn’s Titan moon. Scientists speculate that rainfall is common in the universe. Does rain on other planets share charactorisitcs of rain on earth? Professor Zhang of UC at Santa Cruz reviewed recent research into the physics of alien rain for Indiana Public Media’s “Moment of Science.” Read more via Indiana Public Media

A New Clue in a Decades-Long Search for a Fourth Type of Neutrino

Using a liquid argon time-projection chamber, scientists at Columbia Neutrino Group made high resolution images of neutrino interactions. The project is call MicroBooNE, and its aim is to distinguish between neutrino-created electrons and neutrino-created protons. After analysing three year’s worth of data with the help of AI, the first findings were presented this week at Fermilab. Virtually no neutrono-made protons were found. Georgia Karagiorgi, a lead researcher on the project, says that this discovery is an important step toward our understanding of neutrinos. She credits the cryogenic environment, “It also highlights the capability of the liquid argon technology to accurately differentiate electrons from photons.” Read more via Columbia News

Scientists create the coldest temperature EVER recorded in the lab

For a brief time, scientists at the University of Bremen got a quantum gas to very near absolute zero, a temperature so low that no thermometers can measure it. Researchers confirmed the temperature by measuring the lack of movement in the atoms. At extremes like this, matter can become superfluid, superconducting, or even a fifth state of matter, the Bose-Einstein condensate. Studying matter near absolute zero may improve our understanding of Quantum Mechanics. Read more via MSN/The Daily Mail
