Viewing Radio Waves (Interactive)
In this interactive activity adapted from NASA, learn about radio waves and how astronomers use them to study objects in space. Understand how radio waves are part of the electromagnetic spectrum and explore how the frequency, wavelength, and speed of a wave are related to each other. Investigate the differences between radio waves and sound waves and learn how astronomers use radio waves to create images. Compare optical and radio images of galaxies and nebulas.
The physical world: collisions
It has been called a 'Big Bang Machine', but what is the Large Hadron Collider and what do scientists hope it will discover? Presented by Robert Llewellyn, the three video tracks in this album address the science of collisions, the purpose of particle acceleration and the construction of the LHC at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, in Geneva. This cutting edge machine may detect the elusive Higgs boson, and with it reveal the origin of mass, the missing piece in our understan

Clinical Utility of a Novel Assay for Tracking Tumor Burden in Merkel Cell Carcinoma
Merkel cell carcinoma is an aggressive skin cancer that is typically driven by a common polyomavirus. The requirement of viral proteins to drive the growth of cancer cells has provided important clues as to how this cancer can be tracked and treated. Antibodies to the polyomavirus 'oncoprotein' increase and decrease in parallel with the amount of this cancer in patients. This observation serves as the basis of a test (made clinically available in January 2014 by UW Lab Medicine) that can detect
