Detection of mini black holes at the LHC could indicate parallel universes in extra dimensions
Loophole in theory offers insight into the 'lithium problem'
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.
Research team develops acoustic topological insulator idea to allow for hiding from sonar
Landmark study proves that magnets can control heat and sound
Researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered how to control heat with a magnetic field.
Confirming Einstein, scientists find 'spacetime foam' not slowing down photons from faraway gamma-ray burst (Update)
One hundred years after Albert Einstein formulated the general theory of relativity, an international team has proposed another experimental proof. In a paper published today in Nature Physics, researchers from t ...
Researchers solve the mystery of the dancing droplets (w/ video)
A puzzling observation, pursued through hundreds of experiments, has led Stanford researchers to a simple yet profound discovery: under certain circumstances, droplets of fluid will move like performers in ...
Nano-device used to create and control rogue optical waves
A tiny chip, developed by scientists at the University of St Andrews, could help aid understanding into how rare events such as rogue waves occur.
The dark side of cosmology
It's a beautiful theory: the standard model of cosmology describes the universe using just six parameters. But it is also strange. The model predicts that dark matter and dark energy – two mysterious entities ...
Theorist suggests a way to test gravitational Casimir attraction
Giant virus revealed in 3-D using X-ray laser
For the first time, researchers have produced a 3-D image revealing part of the inner structure of an intact, infectious virus, using a unique X-ray laser at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator ...
Breakthrough in OLED technology
Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), which are made from carbon-containing materials, have the potential to revolutionize future display technologies, making low-power displays so thin they'll wrap or fold ...
Physicists suggest theory versus observational differences in the sun could be due to dark matter
Swimming algae offer insights into living fluid dynamics
None of us would be alive if sperm cells didn't know how to swim, or if the cilia in our lungs couldn't prevent fluid buildup. But we know very little about the dynamics of so-called "living fluids," those ...
