Scientists have captured their best view yet of how extreme magnetic fields shape superfast jets from the most powerful explosions in the universe.
One of the biggest and most vexing problems in physics is how quantum dynamics and general relativity relate to one another -- but could both theories find middle-ground in a wormhole? Continue reading →
In a galaxy far, far away, two black holes have been spotted, trapped in a gravitational dance that can only end when they collide and merge as one. Continue reading →
Something puzzling about a very rare class of distant quasars has been uncovered -- some appear to be sucking material inwards at relativistic speeds, whereas the vast majority of quasars do exactly the opposite. Continue reading →
The Hubble space telescope sure has seen some strange things in deep space -- but this most recent find is possibly one of the strangest. Continue reading →
A new experiment buried deep underground has proven itself to be the most sensitive dark-matter detector ever built -- but the first results from the high-tech instrument have turned up empty in its search for elusive dark matter.
The British physicist explains how time travel may be possible using only a quirk of relativity and a crazy-fast spaceship. Continue reading →
Traveling back in time may be possible if we could somehow harness a relativistic shortcut: the wormhole.
