We may have found evidence that elusive, mysterious dark matter -- something for which there is no direct proof -- is actually sterile neutrinos. And that's going to take some explaining, by way of a speed-tutorial on quantum mechanics from Julian.

Mass and gravity are intimately related, so it stands to reason that the link between the Higgs boson and gravity is just as fundamental -- now astronomers are looking to the stars to actually test the finer details of this relationship. Continue reading →
