Texas A&M-Led Experiment Uses Novel Particle Detector to Track Alternate Theory Behind Carbon Creation in Stars

Carbon, known universally as the basic building block of life, is generally thought by scientists to have formed inside the cores of stars. Now, an experimental apparatus designed by scientists at Texas A&M University is playing a major, first-of-its-kind role in a collaboration to test whether or not the element could have been produced under […]
