Some wait for the check at a restaurant, others for Godot, and still others for a proton to decay, something that's not supposed to happen. Scientists in Japan are watching water in a deep hole, waiting to see the latter and upend particle physics.
Understanding how to bend materials smoothly or snap them quickly could enable more efficient mechanical designs
A long-standing question about a phenomenon first noticed 350 years ago is finally answered.
“When the bubble collapses, it brings in all the material nearby; it’s like a black hole,” researcher says. Continue reading →
Molecules have been chilled to just a smidgen above absolute zero — colder than the afterglow of the Big Bang. Continue reading →
Every ping is an atom hitting the surface. Incredible.
A proposed device would create a veil of heated, ionized air to bend shock waves around people, vehicles or other objects.
With mega companies like Microsoft, Google and IBM quietly investing in quantum computing development, word is starting to leak out that the out-there technology with the sci-fi name might be a part of our lives sooner rather than later.
