Last February’s atmospheric explosion of a meteor over Russia reminded us of the threat from space. But how exactly does one stop an asteroid? BU astronomers suggest some answers.
Professor Richard Murray led an international team on an eight-week voyage to the Sea of Japan searching for clues to the underlying dynamics of the East Asian Monsoon System.
Biology’s Sean Mullen ventures into the mountains of Ecuador, the forests of Costa Rica, and the eastern and western U.S. to understand why species adapt more quickly in warm climates.
Geologist Farouk El-Baz was able to locate vast reservoirs of water deep below the Sahara Desert in the Sudan. Then a group of BU students raised money to fund a well that would bring life-sustaining water to the region.
On September 12, NASA announced that the Voyager 1 spacecraft, first launched in 1977, has entered interstellar space, validating the predictions of BU physicist Merav Opher.
A Maya pyramid beautifully decorated with a rare polychrome-painted stucco frieze was unearthed by CAS researchers in July at the site of Holmul, a Classic Maya city in northeastern Guatemala.
A new study co-authored by CAS astronomers indicates that the Sun, like a boat moving through water, likely forms a crescent-shaped shockwave—or bow shock—as it moves through interstellar gas.
A new study by CAS researchers shows that Walbachia, intracellular bacteria that infect invertebrates at pandemic levels, evolved to target their hosts' stem cells.
Commencement 2013 was a special occasion, as we wished well this year’s graduating class. The weekend included 33 separate ceremonies for CAS/GRS. Click on the link above to see the highlights!
CAS researchers say that scientists should continue to focus on coral reef fish species in their search for answers to questions about how different social behaviors evolved.
