Detection of mini black holes at the LHC could indicate parallel universes in extra dimensions
No Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning
Best of Last Week: Big Bang singularity, unlocking Earth's inner core and another problem with antibiotics
Researcher shows that black holes do not exist
Black holes have long captured the public imagination and been the subject of popular culture, from Star Trek to Hollywood. They are the ultimate unknown – the blackest and most dense objects in the universe that do not ...
Higgs boson could also explain the earliest expansion of the Universe
Fedor Bezrukov from the RIKEN–BNL Research Center and Mikhail Shaposhnikov from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne propose that the Higgs boson, which was recently confirmed to be the origin of mass, ...
Accelerators can search for signs of Planck-scale gravity
The first supercomputer simulations of 'spin–orbit' forces between neutrons and protons in an atomic nucleus
Protons and neutrons are held together at the center of an atom by powerful nuclear forces. A theory that can describe the interaction between just two of these subatomic particles could potentially be extended to predict ...
Simple theory may explain dark matter
Most of the matter in the universe may be made out of particles that possess an unusual, donut-shaped electromagnetic field called an anapole.
HADES searches for dark matter
Although Dark Energy and Dark Matter appear to constitute over 95 percent of the universe, nobody knows of which particles they are made up. Astrophysicists now crossed one potential Dark Matter candidate – the Dark Photon ...
ISOLDE sheds light on dying stars
What happens inside a dying star? A recent experiment at CERN's REX accelerator offers clues that could help astrophysicists to recalculate the ages of some of the largest explosions in the universe.
