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.
It seems that at every turn, the Standard Model of physics reinforces its death choke around the Universe as we know it -- but are physicists beginning to see data that bucks this trend? Continue reading →
Large Hadron Collider scientists have detected an ultra-rare subatomic decay for the first time, a decay that is predicted by the Standard Model -- unfortunately, that's one hefty blow against supersymmetry. Continue reading →
Can the hunt for the Higgs boson finally be laid to rest? No -- physicists have only just begun. Continue reading →
The deep freeze of interstellar clouds are hothouses of "impossible" alcoholic chemical reactions likely brewed by quantum tunneling. Continue reading →
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 →
