- Velocity anti-correlation of diametrically opposed galaxy satellites in the low-redshift UniverseRecent work has shown that the Milky Way and the Andromeda galaxies both possess the unexpected property that their dwarf satellite galaxies are aligned in thin and kinematically coherent planar structures. It is interesting to evaluate the incidence of such planar structures in the larger galactic population, because the Local Group may not be a representat […]
- Materials science: A superelastic organic crystalSuperelasticity — a form of elasticity that involves a phase transition — has been observed for the first time in a pure organic crystal. The material could find applications in microfluidics.
- High-pressure physics: Piling on the pressureThe machine that houses the world's largest laser, and which stands in for the starship Enterprise 's warp core in the film Star Trek Into Darkness , has compressed diamond to the density of lead. See Letter p.330 […]
- Ramp compression of diamond to five terapascalsThe recent discovery of more than a thousand planets outside our Solar System, together with the significant push to achieve inertially confined fusion in the laboratory, has prompted a renewed interest in how dense matter behaves at millions to billions of atmospheres of pressure. The theoretical description of such electron-degenerate matter has matured si […]
