Scientists go to great lengths to extend superlow friction
Physicists propose method to measure variations in the speed of light
Expanding universe can emerge in remarkably simple way, scientists say
When soup is heated, it starts to boil. When time and space are heated, an expanding universe can emerge, without requiring anything like a "Big Bang". This phase transition between a boring empty space and ...
Massive neutrinos solve a cosmological conundrum
(Phys.org) —Scientists have solved a major problem with the current standard model of cosmology by combining results from the Planck spacecraft and measurements of gravitational lensing to deduce the mass ...
Research team challenges the limits of famous quantum principle
(Phys.org) —A team of physicists is challenging the very limits of Heisenberg's famous uncertainty principle by measuring quantum particles with unprecedented accuracy.
New insights found in black hole collisions
New research provides revelations about the most energetic event in the universe—the merging of two spinning, orbiting black holes into a much larger black hole.
Particle detector finds hints of dark matter in space
Researchers at MIT's Laboratory for Nuclear Science have released new measurements that promise to shed light on the origin of dark matter.
Physicists explain puzzling particle collisions
An anomaly spotted at the Large Hadron Collider has prompted scientists to reconsider a mathematical description of the underlying physics. By considering two forces that are distinct in everyday life but ...
Einstein's 'spooky' theory may lead to ultra-secure internet
(Phys.org) —Einstein's scepticism about quantum mechanics may lead to an ultra-secure internet, suggests a new paper by researchers from Swinburne University of Technology and Peking University.
Light knots: Physicists use Maxwell's equations to describe field lines that encode torus knots and links
Hypothetical new cosmological model known as Higgsogenesis
Recently in the news there's been talk of a new cosmological model known as Higgsogenesis. A paper outlining this model has been recently been published Physical Review Letters. The term Higgsogenesis refers t ...
Trio of physicists create computer simulation of dark matter using an empirical function
Physicists use element 115 to highlight a way for taking new superheavy elements' fingerprints
An international team of researchers presents fresh evidence that confirms the existence of the superheavy chemical element 115. The experiment was conducted at the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Res ...
