    Stereo scientists refute the existence of sterile neutrons
    Stereo, the collaboration between the CEA, CNRS, the Université Grenoble-Alpes (UGA), the Université Savoie Mont Blanc (USMB), the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), and the Max Planck Institut für Kernphysik (MPIK), has found no proof that the sterile neutrino exists after six years of experimentation. Their conclusion will impact numerous branches of physics, with their study to be published on 12 January in Nature.

    Discovery of world's oldest DNA breaks million-year record
    A new chapter in evolutionary history starts with the recent discovery of two-million-year-old DNA: Microscopic fragments of environmental DNA have been discovered in sediments from northern Greenland. Using state-of-the-art technology, the international research team, including scientists from Grenoble's Laboratoire d'écologie alpine (LECA - UGA / USMB / CNRS) and the Institut des Sciences de la Terre (ISTerre - UGA / USMB / CNRS / IRD / Université Gustave Eiffel), discovered that these fragments are one million years older than the previous record of DNA collected from a Siberian mammoth bone. These research results were published in the prestigious scientific journal Nature on 7 December, 2022.
