BYU Produces More Physics Teachers Than Other U.S. Colleges

BYU once again received The PhysTEC 5+ Club Award,  reserved for U.S. colleges that graduate five or more certified physics teachers in a year. Only nine schools received the award this year, with BYU leading the pack.

Seventeen certified physics teachers graduated from BYU during the 2014-2015 school year. The runner-up was Illinois University, with ten graduates.

Searching for Alien Comets: BYU Researchers Create Guidebook

Treasure needs a map, vehicles need a manual, and, as it turns out, interstellar discoveries need a guidebook.

New research in Astrophysical Journal is acting as that guidebook to aid in the discovery of interstellar comets—comets from other solar systems.

The new publication is an extension of the undergraduate senior thesis of Nathaniel Cook, former BYU student.
