Physics Friday
Majorana Particles : The neutrino may well be a Majorana fermion, experiments are currently underway. In condensed matter, many folks are hot on the trail of a quasi Majorana fermion. A recent claimed observation has been retracted. Science is messy. Check out Thomas Lewton's article on the subject.
Xenobots : Check out Doug Blackiston’s research website on xenobots, and Philip Ball’s recent piece in Quanta.
The Coma Cluster : Bruce McClure has a write up in EarthSky this week about hunting the Coma Cluster. The cluster has a rich history in modern astrophysics; it was one of the first case studies in Dark Matter. As Fritz Zwicky pointed out way back in 1933, the motion of the galaxies in the coma cluster are totally inconsistent with their expected mass.
