NASA research suggests significant atmosphere in lunar past and possible source of water on Moon  

Huntsville AL (SPX) Oct 20, 2017 Looking up at the Moon at night, Earth's closest neighbor appears in shades of gray and white; a dry desert in the vacuum of space, inactive and dead for billions of years. Like many things, though, with the Moon, there is so much more than what meets the eye. Research completed by NASA Marshall Space Flight Center planetary volcanologist Debra Needham in Huntsville, Alabama, and planetary

Using optical chaos to control the momentum of light

For light to couple between optical components, it needs to be moving at the same momentum. Now, a team of researchers has demonstrated a new way to control the momentum of broadband light in a widely-used optical component known as a whispering gallery microcavity (WGM).
