Scientists control super fast frequencies
Source: UMich Posted: 4/22/05 Imagine an imaging technology that could see deep into human tissue without the harmful side effects of radiation. Super-fast oscillations of radio waves, called terahertz (THz) have that promise, but so far, controlling them has been beyond reach.

Spitzer Detects Old Stars in Early Universe
Source: Caltech Posted: 4/10/05 UK and US astronomers have used the Spitzer Space Telescope and the Hubble Space Telescope to detect light coming from some of the first stars to form in some of the most distant galaxies yet seen.
'Where the telescope ends, the microscope begins. Which of the two has the grander view?'
