WVU will use $9.65 million NSF grant to build science and engineering infrastructure that will benefit West Virginia
West Virginia University will use nearly half of a $20 million National Science Foundation grant to research areas important to the state and nation – a clean water supply and a deeper understanding of our universe – while also preparing the state’s workforce for high-tech jobs and promoting science education among the state’s students.
New National Science Foundation award to help continue WVU research Einstein's general relativity theory, 100 years on
A hundred years after renowned physicist Albert Einstein published his theory of general relativity, researchers at West Virginia University are using a unique pulsar system to test it.
West Virginia University (WVU) and the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) together received a nearly $2 million, three-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to expand the reach and impact of the highly successful Pulsar Search Collaboratory (PSC) student science education initiative. Approximately $700,000 of the grant will go to the NRAO; WVU will receive approximately $1.3 million.
Students at West Virginia University have looked to the skies and discovered six pulsars.
WVU astronomer helps explain mysteries of 'Fast Radio Burst' discovered with the Green Bank Telescope
A team of astronomers, including a West Virginia University professor, has uncovered the most detailed record ever of a Fast Radio Burst, or FRB, brief yet brilliant eruptions of cosmic radio waves that have baffled astronomers since they were first reported nearly a decade ago. The results of their research are published in the journal Nature.
Mysterious radio wave flashes from far outside the galaxy are proving tough for astronomers to explain. Is it pulsars? A spy satellite? Or an alien message?
