While looking for a strange state of matter in two particle accelerators, it has been announced that another, totally unexpected, particle has been discovered. Continue reading →
Bosons and fermions are fundamental particles -- but the "anyon" could be the wild-child of the quantum world.
Could the quantum vacuum of space act a bit like a metamaterial, creating a cosmic "superlens"? One physicist thinks so.
OPERA spokesperson Antonio Ereditato and experimental coordinator Dario Autiero, who were in the middle of the media circus surrounding the "faster-than-light" neutrino results, have stepped down.
It may not be the long-awaited news about a Higgs boson discovery, but an "interesting" announcement will soon come from scientists analyzing data from the Tevatron particle accelerator.
You wouldn't think a sunken ship from 2000 years ago could hold the key to the success of a neutrino detection experiment, except perhaps in a Hollywood movie. But sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.
That's right, the nearby spiral galaxy Andromeda is strutting some quasar bling -- the first microquasar discovered beyond our own galaxy.
It seems antimatter might have a bit of a weight problem these days. A U.S. particle accelerator has produced antimatter helium-4, an extremely rare -- and heavy -- particle.
