High-energy protons emitted after hooking up with neutrons

If you hit an atom's nucleus hard enough, it will fall apart. But exactly how it falls apart tells us something about the internal structure of the nucleus and perhaps about the interior of neutron stars. One of the unexpected things we seem to be learning is that the way particles in the nucleus pair up allows them to reach higher energies than expected, and having excess neutrons only encourages this behavior.

To someone like me—I never took any courses on nuclear physics—the nucleus is a bit like visiting a familiar beach and discovering a colony of dragons. The nucleus consists of protons, which are positively charged. These should repel each other, but the nucleus doesn’t explode because of neutrons. Neutrons are, as the name suggests, neutral. However, they are the glue that binds the protons together.

This description makes the nucleus sound like a disorganized mess of protons and neutrons, but it isn’t. The nucleus has a structure remarkably similar to the electrons orbiting the nucleus.

Please join us in welcoming Ars’ newest contributor, Jennifer Ouellette

Ars Technica - August 16, 2018 - 2:36pm

Readers who pay careful attention may have noticed a new byline attached to an article yesterday. And if you follow physics, you'll have been excited to learn about our newest writer that way. For the rest of you, we're pleased to announce that Jennifer Ouellette is joining the Ars staff.

Jennifer will be familiar to many of you because of her deep background in science coverage. She has contributed as a freelancer to more places than is convenient to list. She has blogged on the field at Cocktail Party Physics and shares a huge range of science stories on social media. Her most recent staff position was as a senior science editor at Gizmodo. In short, she's been immersed in science for years and brings a wealth of experience to a field we don't cover as thoroughly as we'd like to.

But if I could channel my best informercial voice, that's not all. One of her interests in covering science has been to bring forward the science behind the everyday world around us—the sort of cocktail party physics that gave her blog its name. This is not something we've always done well (when we've done it at all), and it's the sort of coverage that bleeds over into technology and our wider culture, which makes her a fantastic fit for Ars.

ISPs say they can’t expand broadband unless gov’t gives them more money

Broadband providers have spent years lobbying against utility-style regulations that protect consumers from high prices and bad service.

But now, broadband lobby groups are arguing that Internet service is similar to utilities such as electricity, gas distribution, roads, and water and sewer networks. In the providers' view, the essential nature of broadband doesn't require more regulation to protect consumers. Instead, they argue that broadband's utility-like status is reason for the government to give ISPs more money.

That's the argument made by trade groups USTelecom and NTCA—The Rural Broadband Association. USTelecom represents telcos including AT&T, Verizon, and CenturyLink, while NTCA represents nearly 850 small ISPs.

Elon Musk’s Boring Company proposes one-way, 3.6 mile tunnel to Dodger Stadium

Elon Musk's two-year-old tunnel digging venture has proposed yet another project in the Los Angeles area: a one-way, approximately 3.6-mile tunnel from a lot near an LA Metro Station to Dodger Stadium.

Currently, this idea is just a proposal, and it still needs approval by LA City Council as well as all of the permitting necessary to tunnel under the Echo Park and Silver Lake neighborhoods. (That's not trivial: there are at least five separate agencies that would be involved in the process of building this tunnel.)

The Boring Company offered three possibilities for a western terminus of the tunnel, in either Los Feliz, East Hollywood, or Rampart Village. Each neighborhood has an LA Metro station that could be used, and The Boring Company proposes that it would buy a piece of property within walking distance of that station to set up its own station.
