Haris N. Koutsopoulos believes that our ability to predict the future has the potential to enable various innovations in public transit. The short-term future, that is. Is a subway station or […]
A discovery by a research team led by Northeastern’s Paul Champion upends the understanding held for centuries of protons’ behavior. The researchers—using an ultrafast pulsed laser system designed at Northeastern—have revealed that protons actually tunnel through thermodynamic barriers rather than travel over them. Science magazine, struck by the results, highlighted the research in its “Editor’s Choice” column.
Two of the most unique—and potentially revolutionary—games of all-time were released this summer, in “Pokémon Go” and “No Man’s Sky.” The seemingly very different games share a striking similarity that says a lot about the future of the gaming industry.

Over the past week, Donald Trump has expressed regret for some of his caustic comments and reshuffled his campaign staff, fueling a theory that he’s laying the groundwork to build a media empire to rival Fox News. Dan Urman, a political science and public policy expert, discusses the recent campaign moves and how the attention to Trump’s “brand” may be a win for the candidate, regardless of November’s outcome.
Just as investigators use evidence to reconstruct crime scenes, Northeastern data scientist Olga Vitek hunts down and analyzes molecular changes that drive diseases to reconstruct their biological “crime scenes.” The evidence she compiles in her massive datasets leads to earlier diagnoses and more effective treatments.
