The Bhabha Atomic Reseach Centre (BARC) has developed a next-generation bulletproof jacket for the Indian armed forces, which is not only cheaper but also much lighter. Bhabha Kavach, named after nuclear physicist Dr. Homi J. Bhabha, the jacket was developed at BARC's Trombay centre in ...
Nuclear physicists have long sought to derive an "equation of state" (EoS) that describes dense nuclear matter, such as that found inside a neutron star. Such an EoS, based on fundamental nuclear physics parameters, would predict, among other things, the stellar mass-radius relationship and ...
