Scientists in Germany said Wednesday they had made the most precise measurement yet of the mass of the electron, one of the building blocks of matter.
New concerns about the world-ending potential of the second most powerful particle accelerator in the world stems from a misconception of "risk." Continue reading →
Theoretical physicists may have stumbled onto a solution to the black hole "information paradox" -- what if a black hole's singularity isn't an infinitely dense point in space-time? Continue reading →
The renowned physicist has thrown the black hole "firewall paradox" into the limelight by suggesting black holes' event horizons be replaced with "apparent horizons." Continue reading →
New measurements of the electron have confirmed, to the smallest precision attainable, that it has a perfect roundness -- this is bad news for theories of physics beyond the standard model. Continue reading →
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 →
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.
Warp-drive technology, a form of 'faster than light' travel, could be bolstered by the physics of quantum thrusters — another science-fiction idea made plausible by modern science.
