Tune in tonight at 7 p.m. for a fascinating Perimeter Institute public lecture on the physics and mysteries behind neutron stars.
A network of small, ground-based telescopes hunting the night-time skies for transient supernovas fished out a whopper -- a one-of-a-kind cosmic explosion that at its peak blasted out more light than 50 times all the stars in the Milky Way galaxy.
We hear a lot about dark matter, and how physicists are ever on the hunt for it. But how do you look for something you can't even see?
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 →
Astronomers wanting more accurate measurements of distant black holes have some new assistants -- robots that can tackle the tedious task of monitoring black hole neighbor clouds’ glow.
Tonight at 7pm ET Paul Schaffer, Associate Laboratory Director of TRIUMF’s Life Sciences Division, will explore how he and his team use accelerators to develop tools and techniques to advance the field of nuclear medicine.
Astrophysicists have created a computer model that simulates a dying stars' magnetic guts before generating a cosmic monster.
A century after Albert Einstein unveiled a new concept to explain gravity, his so-called general relativity theory remains fertile ground for scientific observations and experiments.
