The device is designed to sift through cosmic rays and will be launched on the space shuttle Endeavour on Feb. Knowing what nature is made of could be useful someday in ways nobody can dream. Or the device could find something even weirder.
A few yards away, the hulking spectrometer was sitting in a test frame, being pinged by a beam of protons in final tests before being shipped to Cape Canaveral. Searching for answers According to the laws of physics, equal amounts of matter and its science-fiction-sounding evil twin, antimatter — which annihilates ordinary matter in a flash of energy upon contact — should have been created during the Big Bang.
It is one of the abiding mysteries of science why the uni- verse is now all matter. The discovery of a single atomic nucleus heavier than antihelium could mean there was an anti-star or maybe a whole antigalaxy somewhere. Goldin was instantly smitten and agreed to put the spectrometer on the International Space Station. Ina prototype of the spectrometer was built and flown successfully on the space shuttle for 10 days on a trip to the Mir space station.
NASA decreed an early end to the shuttle era, and the Alpha spectrometer was dropped from the flight manifest. Ininvited to address a Senate committee on the state of U. By then nobody, with the possible exception of Ting, expected the experiment to find any primordial antimatter.
Most theorists have concluded that it disappeared in the first moments after the Big Bang. Instead, the heavens were crackling with intimations of dark matter. Two years ago, a European satellite named Pa- Scientists at CERN have figured out how to trap one type of antimatter — elusive antihydrogen atoms — according to research published online this week in the journal Nature.
But that satellite had no way to tell positrons, which are exotic, from protons, which are humdrum, being the nuclei of hydrogen, and everywhere. The Alpha spectrometer does. Earlier this year, with a fall flight date finally secured, Ting announced he was ripping out the heart of his experiment and replacing his superconducting magnet with a weaker permanent magnet that had flown on the prototype flight.
That meant he would miss the deadline for shipping the instrument to Cape Canaveral, Fla. NASA promptly reshuffled the schedule and moved the flight to next year.
The late change led to renewed criticism from scientists who wondered if the experiment had been degraded or whether it was even safe to fly now. Shuttle engineers, however, said they were relieved that they would not have to deal with liquid helium, which can vaporize explosively — as it did in the Large Hadron Collider two years ago.

Average math scores also ticked upward. The black-white achievement gap dates back more than a century, though researchers debate why it persists.
August 2011 Jacksonville Review
Researchers presume that language barriers pull down scores for Hispanics. The math and reading tests, known as the National Assessment of Educational Progress and administered by the Department of Education, were given in spring to a representative national sample of about 50, 12th-grade students.
Educators and school policymakers closely monitor the national assessment scores much the way corporate leaders and economists watch for changes in the gross domestic product or employment trends. On the point scale used in the reading assessment, the average 12th-grader scored on the test, up from in On the math assessment, which is scored on a point scale, the average 12th-grader scored inup from in Because the governing board changed the math test before its administration, the latest results cannot be compared with previous math tests given in the s and early s.
Peace prize ceremony may be modified as recipient remains jailed By Keith B. If he succeeds, Obama will demonstrate strength following the midterm election debacle.

Instead, according to supporters, text messages from Liu and perhaps some of his past writings may be read aloud. Meanwhile, half a dozen countries, including China, have said they will not send diplomatic representatives to the ceremony. But officials of the Norwegian Nobel Committee told wire services Thursday that diplomats from about 36 other countries have confirmed they will attend.

People have been detained, committed to house arrest, and had their telephone and Internet lines severed, and some have been stopped at the airport as they were leaving the country, for fear they might try to attend the Nobel ceremony. Sincethe company has scanned more than 10 million books from dozens of libraries around the world.
Many of those books are under copyright, but Google wants to be able to share them anyway, including with libraries. Publishers and authors initially rejected the idea and in sued Google for making unauthorized copies. But after three years of litigation, the two sides crafted a settlement that would allow publishers to sell books through Google and give libraries and users instant access to huge numbers of books that have long been out of print but are still legally protected.
The settlement has been opposed by many authors, legal scholars and booksellers, who fear it could give Google too much power over the market for digital books. The 2-year-old pact is under review by a federal court in New York. Continued from A1 In the struggle to stay relevant — and ultimately to stay open — libraries are reinventing themselves in ways unimaginable even a few years ago, preparing for a future in which most materials can be checked out and read from a home computer, smart phone or electronic reading device.

University and public libraries are rushing to push as much material as they can onto the Web, so patrons can peruse genealogical records, historical maps or rare volumes without leaving home. Many public libraries are also becoming digital activity centers, where in addition to books visitors can find game rooms, computer clusters or Internet cafes.
Collections of DVDs have swelled, as has the number of high-definition televisions. A matter of survival Some traditional librarians worry that experiments aimed at making libraries more accessible could dumb them down.
The average number of items checked out per visit by public library users dropped nearly 6 percent between andaccording to the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Book checkouts at the New York Public Library alone plunged by 1 million volumes in the most recent fiscal year. At wooden reading tables, only a handful of people sit paging through newspapers.
