On Sept. 24, the University of Arizona-led OSIRIS-REx mission will return material from the dawn of the solar system to Earth for study.
Using the James Webb Space Telescope, astronomers observed detailed features, including roiling clouds of dust, in the atmosphere of a brown dwarf planet 40 light-years away.
As a sizable asteroid makes a close pass by Earth, a team of UArizona students is ready to observe the action to practice and test procedures that could be useful in mitigating an impending asteroid impact in the future.
UArizona students have developed an online game modeled after the popular "tangram" puzzle game. The game is meant to help teach quantum computation concepts to people ranging from young students to researchers.
Part of the Arizona Experiment Station system, the Santa Rita Experimental Range is one of the longest continuously operating research areas in the world and is responsible for one of the richest publicly available ecological data sets.
Imagine a home computer operating 1 million times faster than the most expensive hardware on the market. Now, imagine that being the industry standard. UArizona physicists hope to pave the way for that reality.
As spring blooms across much of Arizona, university researchers are launching a community health effort with a unique call to the public: Send us your ticks. The Great Arizona Tick Check will help researchers build the first-ever database of tick distribution and correlated disease in Arizona.
Mapping a large coastal glacier in Alaska revealed that its bulk sits below sea level and is undercut by channels, making it vulnerable to accelerated melting in an already deteriorating coastal habitat.
When engineers 3D-print metal objects, they use metals originally developed for conventional manufacturing. It works, but not as well as it could. Two UArizona experts are using a new suite of equipment to develop alloys optimized for both 3D printing and hypersonic flight.
The university's Center for Innovation – a business incubator network that empowers science and technology startups to bring their ideas to market – had an economic output of $35.3 million in 2021, according to a new analysis.
