Dr. Mike Reed, two students, Laura Katzer and John Crooke, and several international collaborators recently published work on evolved (subdwarf) stars. Their paper, entitled, “Two p-mode dominated subdwarf B pulsators in binaries with F-star companions observed with K2” analyzed seismic reading of stars found with the Kepler space telescope. About their research Reed, … [Read more...] about Exploring the stars, one vibration at a time
Dr. Kartik Ghosh, professor of physics, was recently featured for his work with nanoparticles. He wants to find which ones will work with the human body instead of against it. Congratulations! Read more about his work with nanoparticles. … [Read more...] about Learn more about nanoparticles
We've walked on the moon. We've discovered new planets. However, one thing that is difficult to understand are the insides of stars. When we look at stars with telescopes, we only see the outer layers. At Missouri State University, we've been lucky to look at stars with one of the most influential telescopes ever made: the Kepler space telescope. Though it’s not as easy … [Read more...] about Learn about the stars without leaving Earth
As it turns out, many care about friction, but maybe not in the classroom. Christopher Robledo, an applied physics and engineering undergraduate major, had the opportunity to explore friction this summer. Through a Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI), Robledo spent 10 weeks at Argonne National Laboratory in DuPage County, Illinois. The SULI program provides … [Read more...] about Who cares about friction?
