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 →
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 →
A new and novel theory posits that the Big Bang didn't happen -- but there are some fundamental flaws with this idea. Continue reading →
Scientists looking for planets around the star nearest to the solar system will soon get a helping hand from Mother Nature. Continue reading →
An exoplanet has been discovered by Kepler using a strange quirk of relativity. Continue reading →
The Kepler space telescope's prime objective is to hunt for small worlds orbiting distant stars, but that doesn't mean it's not going to detect some extreme relativistic phenomena along the way. ->
Do you ever get those days when you question reality? Fermilab is building a machine that may prove that "reality" is only a holographic projection from the outermost boundary of the Universe.
Using a new visualization tool, the extreme nature of spacetime surrounding colliding black holes has been modeled.
