Recent Maine Self-Defense Shooting Reflects Historic Gun Saint Event

A century and a half earlier, in 1860, St. Gabriel Possenti used handguns to save villagers in Isola del Gran Sasso, Italy from a gang of marauders. This post Recent Maine Self-Defense Shooting Reflects Historic Gun Saint Event appeared first on Shooting Sports News.

Hotel Campo Imperatore in Assergi, Italy

11 months agoLifestyle / Travel : Atlas Obscura

The inaccessibility of Hotel Campo Imperatore, a ski resort complex high up in the Gran Sasso mountains, made it an ideal spot for placing the Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini under house arrest in August, 1943. But even the remote...Show More Summary

Three Puppies Rescued After Deadly Italian Avalanche 

Last week, an avalanche engulfed a hotel nestled in the steps of Italy’s Gran Sasso mountain. The avalanche, which struck in the early hours of morning, caused extensive damage to the hotel and claimed at least 7 lives. At least 22 others are still missing. Read more...

Red Giant Stars --"Hold Clues to the Origin of Elements in the Universe"

The LUNA experiment at the INFN Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy has observed a rare nuclear reaction that occurs in giant red stars, a type of star in which our sun will also evolve. This is the first direct...

Dark matter’s newest pursuer

Scientists have inaugurated the new XENON1T experiment at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy. Researchers at a laboratory deep underneath the tallest mountain in central Italy have inaugurated XENON1T, the world’s largest and most...Show More Summary

XMASS continues dark matter debate

XMASS is the latest of multiple experiments to contradict a previous dark matter discovery claim, but the conversation isn't over yet. Since 1998, scientists on the DAMA-LIBRA experiment at Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy have...Show More Summary

Life Underground: Anything Anyone Would Teach Me

Going underground most days for work is probably the weirdest-sounding this about this job. At Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, we use the lab to be underground because of the protection it affords us from cosmic rays, weather, and other disruptions, and with it we get a shorthand description of all the weirdness of lab

ICARUS hits the road

A giant neutrino detector is traveling by truck from the Italian Gran Sasso laboratories to CERN to get ready for a new life. Last night a 600-metric-tonne particle detector became the world’s largest neutrino experiment currently on...Show More Summary

The Coldest Thing in the Observable Universe Was on Earth

Particle physicists working at an underground laboratory underneath Italy’s Gran Sasso mountain cooled an 880-pound mass of copper to -273.144°C/—459.659°F, a mere.006°C away from absolute zero (0°K/-275.15°C/-459.67°F). For about two weeks, it was the coldest object in the observable universe—and by that I mean the coldest...

Dark-matter seekers get help from the DarkSide

A treasure trove of dark-matter detectors rests within the deep reaches of Italy's Apennine Mountains as part of Gran Sasso National Laboratory. The mountains shield the detectors from cosmic rays, making them highly sensitive to dark-matter particles.

New CERN Tests Attack the Existence of Dark Matter

New results have come in from the Xenon100 experiment, a tub of cryogenically cooled liquid xenon buried 1400 metres down a mine at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory near L'Aquila, Italy that show no sign of WIMPs, or weakly interacting...

It's Official: Neutrinos Can't Beat Speed Of Light

6 years agoHumor : The Presurfer

image credit Back in September 2011, a team of particle physicists detected neutrinos moving faster than the speed of light as they traveled from CERN to the Gran Sasso lab. They smashed the universal speed limit by 60 nanoseconds -Show More Summary

Neutrinos sent from CERN to Gran Sasso respect the cosmic speed limit, experiments confirm

The latest results on the time of flight of neutrinos from CERN to the INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory have just been presented. Four experiments -- Borexino, ICARUS, LVD and OPERA -- all measure a neutrino time of flight consistent with the speed of light. Show More Summary
