Mankind’s biggest ever platform for scientific discovery goes offline when Mother Nature intervenes.
Astronomers are highly aware that the vast majority of matter in our universe is invisible, or 'dark.' So what the heck is it? Well, now we have a good idea as to what it probably isn't.
Dark matter could be made of particles that each weigh almost as much as a human cell and are nearly dense enough to become miniature black holes, new research suggests.
In the roller-coaster rumor mill that surrounds some of the biggest physics endeavors of our time, it pays to remain skeptical when extraordinary claims of historic discoveries are made on social media.
As the year draws to a close and the Large Hadron Collider prepares for a winter break, a tantalizing hint of new physics surfaces in particle collision data. Continue reading →
Science fiction literature is full of stories in which tunnels in space-time — known as wormholes — are used for time travel. How much fact lies within the fiction? The answer is, more than you might think.
A US-based laboratory has produced tiny droplets of a state of matter that existed in the first few milliseconds after the Big Bang after slamming particles together at close to the speed of light.
Has Stephen Hawking found the 'emergency exit' for information falling into a black hole?
