Team records neutrinos from the Earth's mantle
New model of cosmic stickiness favors 'Big Rip' demise of universe
The universe can be a very sticky place, but just how sticky is a matter of debate.
Is the Higgs boson a piece of the matter-antimatter puzzle?
(Phys.org) —Several experiments, including the BaBar experiment at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have helped explain some – but not all – of the imbalance between matter and antimatter ...
Telescopes hint at neutrino beacon at the heart of the Milky Way
(Phys.org) —Identifying the sources of high-energy neutrinos—ghostly but potentially information-rich particles believed to be generated by some of the most violent objects in the sky—is near the top of many an astrophysicist's ...
X-ray telescopes find black hole may be a neutrino factory
(Phys.org) —The giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way may be producing mysterious particles called neutrinos. If confirmed, this would be the first time that scientists have traced neutrinos back to a black hole.
Fermi data tantalize with new clues to dark matter
(Phys.org) —A new study of gamma-ray light from the center of our galaxy makes the strongest case to date that some of this emission may arise from dark matter, an unknown substance making up most of the material universe. ...
Titan Project explores the smallest building blocks of matter
(Phys.org) —Our world is made up of particles so tiny they may actually be points in space. These are quarks, relative newcomers to the physics conversation that were not even postulated until the mid-1960s. Put them together ...
Researchers propose a new way to detect the elusive graviton
(Phys.org) —Among the four fundamental forces of nature, only gravity has not had a basic unit, or quanta, detected. Physicists expect that gravitational force is transmitted by an elementary particle called a graviton, ...
New mathematical model links space-time theories
Researchers at the University of Southampton have taken a significant step in a project to unravel the secrets of the structure of our Universe.
