Wildlife in the deep freeze

As temperatures in Madison dropped toward -50 degrees Fahrenheit during the Polar Vortex last week, few people ventured outside for even fifteen minutes. Imagine if you were one of the local cardinals, deer or fox who live outside year-round, including the chilling winter months.

Gab: The social media for the alt-right

 Students are no strangers to emerging social media trends – as avid smartphone users, young adults are likely to pick up on new dating apps, new mobile payment apps (e.g. Venmo, Cashapp) and even new social media platforms. However, students may be unaware of a different kind of social platform that took hold in 2018 – a platform that touts its commitment to free speech and open dialogs for radical discussions.

Autos: Tesla strikes back

Tesla has continued to prove as one of the most volatile car manufacturers in the industry, but that hasn’t stopped investors from pouring money into the company, leading it to become the most valuable American car brand on Wall Street.

Neutrinos: the nanoscopic messengers from space

One of the most prevalent particles in the universe is also one of the most difficult to detect. Neutrinos can travel billions of light years—or even from the beginning of time itself—unimpeded by any of the matter they come into contact with.

LAB3 work synergizes physics, scientists, arts

A scientific paper detailing detection methods of dark matter and words like electrons, neutrinos and muons thrown about—these are things expected in a physics lecture or in the office of a physics professor at UW-Madison, but perhaps not at all expected in a local Madison art gallery.

New biomanufacturing initiative created with $750,000 grant

The University of Wisconsin–Madison announced a new partnership establishing the Forward BIO Initiative on Thursday, thanks to a $750,000 grant from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. “The Forward BIO Initiative will have everything it takes to amplify the impact of Wisconsin’s innovations in biomanufacturing,” said William Murphy, a professor of biomedical engineering and orthopedics at UW–Madison. Biomanufacturing is defined as the use of advanced biotechnology manufacturing to produce biomaterial for medicines, food, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices.
