Grant funds physics study

Hawaii’s congressional delegation has announced a new $1.5 million grant for physics research at the University of Hawaii.

The money will go to high-energy physics research. The delegation said in a news release Thursday that $8.9 million eventually will be invested.

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz says particle physics research is what led to the discovery of the electron more than 100 years ago.

U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard says the money will enable UH to continue to lead in the field of high-energy physics. That field examines properties of matter and understanding of the physical universe.
