Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics, & Engineering Research
The Center for Astrophysics, Space Physics, and Engineering Research (CASPER) is a partnership between Baylor University and Texas State Technical College-Waco (TSTC) existing through a signed agreement between the Presidents of the two institutions. Space research within CASPER is built around a heritage dating from the 1960's and including flight projects back to Explorer I. CASPER also has a significant education and outreach program currently funded by the Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, the Heart of Texas Council of Governments and the Cooper Foundation.
The Trans Light State
A theory, with doable experiments, which holds that "above" or "beyond" our 4-D universe (space + time) exists a 5th dimensional reality. That reality, in which neither time, space, energy nor matter as we know it exist, gives rise to our sub-light universe. One prediction is that the smallest particle of matter, when it is discovered, will be found to have a mass which is locally constant but which varies from one part of the universe to another.
The Gamma Ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST)
An astro-particle physics partnership exploring the high-energy universe.
Kavli Institute for Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (KIPAC)
An independent laboratory of Stanford University, the Institute bridges the theoretical and experimental physics communities and brings their combined strengths to bear on problems in particle astrophysics and cosmology.
Cause of the Characteristics of Quasars
Hypothesis which attempts to explain the characteristics of QSOs (Quasi-Steller Objects), a.k.a. quasars, as optical illusions created by gravitational lensing and other phenomena.
