Unexpected data from the Large Hadron Collider suggest the collisions may be producing a new type of matter
Collisions between protons and lead ions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have produced surprising behavior in some of the particles created by the collisions. The new observation suggests the collisions ...
NASA satellite could reveal if primordial black holes are dark matter
Scientists recreating early universe quark-gluon plasma in giant particle accelerators
(Phys.org) —In the first few microseconds after the big bang, the universe was a superhot, superdense primordial soup of "quarks" and "gluons," particles of matter and carriers of force respectively. This ...
Nuclear-atomic overlap for the isotope thorium-229
More than 99.9% of the mass of any atom is concentrated into a quadrillionth of its volume, the part occupied by the nucleus. Unimaginably small, dense and energetic, atomic nuclei are governed by laws quite ...

A clock that will last forever: Researchers propose a way to build the first space-time crystal
(Phys.org)—Imagine a clock that will keep perfect time forever, even after the heat-death of the universe. This is the "wow" factor behind a device known as a "space-time crystal," a four-dimensional crystal ...
