Alumni Perspectives with Chris Fetterly (’18 PhD)
For more than 100 years, astrophysicists
have been puzzled by the source of high-
energy neutrinos, known as cosmic rays,
that travel to Earth at the speed of light.
A global team of researchers believes
they’ve now found the answer to the
extraterrestrial mystery: a blazar—a giant
elliptical galaxy with a massive, rapidly
spinning black hole at its core.
Scientists have discovered for the first
time a fossilized embryo, preserved
in ancient amber. The discovery is
rewriting what paleontologists know
about the evolution of modern snakes.
New research on managing aquatic
invasive species in Canada combines
the power of machine learning with
expertise in biology and statistics to
build a simple, easy-to-use tool for
