Serious trekkies know all about the warp drive -- a means to bend space-time so Starfleet ships can move faster than the speed of light. Are we there yet? Will we ever be?
Now the elusive ripples in spacetime have been found, scientists are planning for a rich future for using gravitational wave observatories to unmask the warped side of cosmos.
Detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes has been confirmed, proving a critical Einstein theory.
An ancient supernova that was serendipitously captured in four Hubble space telescope images thanks to a naturally occurring cosmic magnifying lens has reappeared, as astronomers predicted.
Scientists are taking initial steps in a long-term effort to learn as much as they can about gravitational waves -- mysterious undulations in the fabric of space-time that have so far evaded clear detection.
Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, The Perimeter Institute will be hosting a special lecture by theoretical physicist Neil Turok, who will explain why, actually, our universe has the simplest geometry of anything we know. Streamed LIVE.
How does time stop everything from happening at once? What mechanism drives time forward, but not backward? Continue reading →
Through the analysis of light from distant galactic clusters, astronomers have detected a mysterious signal that they're having a hard time explaining. Continue reading →
