Scientist at Work: Richard SutterMonday, April 20, 2009Steve Chaplin
Give Richard Sutter that tooth you kept as a kid, a little time to work and the Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne bioarchaeologist will be telling you things about your great-great-great grandparents you may never have imagined. By examining genetically influenced tooth traits and pathologies such as cavities and tooth wear, Sutter can tell which family matriarchs or patriarchs lived well, with plentiful foods and healthy offspring, or which of their kin suffered through times of stress and disease.

IU GlueX experiment advances with Department of Energy groundbreakingMonday, April 20, 2009David Bricker
For more than a decade Indiana University physicists have only been able to theorize about the nature of exotic hybrid mesons, unique particles that may be the key to unlocking how quarks bind together to form matter's building blocks. But the journey to move beyond theory in the search for these elusive particles moved a step closer on April 14 with the turn of a shovel in Newport News, Va.

IU astronomerís discovery poses challenge to galaxy formation theoriesMonday, April 20, 2009David Bricker
A team led by an Indiana University astronomer has found a sample of massive galaxies with properties that suggest they may have formed relatively recently. This would run counter to the widely-held belief that massive, luminous galaxies (like our own Milky Way Galaxy) began their formation and evolution shortly after the Big Bang, some 13 billion years ago. Further research into the nature of these objects could open new windows into the study of the origin and early evolution of galaxies.
