Do we live in a 2-D hologram? New Fermilab experiment will test the nature of the universe
A unique experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer has started collecting data that will answer some mind-bending questions about our universe ...
Creation of entanglement simultaneously gives rise to a wormhole
Quantum entanglement is one of the more bizarre theories to come out of the study of quantum mechanics—so strange, in fact, that Albert Einstein famously referred to it as "spooky action at a distance."
Report: Scientists 'teleport' two photons
Scientists in Germany say they have successfully teleported the combined quantum state of two photons.
Information Storage in Three Dimensions
Fusion, anyone? Not quite yet, but researchers show just how close we've come
The dream of igniting a self-sustained fusion reaction with high yields of energy, a feat likened to creating a miniature star on Earth, is getting closer to becoming reality, according the authors of a new ...
Einstein's gravity theory passes toughest test yet: Bizarre binary star system pushes study of relativity to new limits
(Phys.org) —A strange stellar pair nearly 7,000 light-years from Earth has provided physicists with a unique cosmic laboratory for studying the nature of gravity. The extremely strong gravity of a massive ...
Researchers may have solved information loss paradox to find black holes do not form
"Nothing there," is what Case Western Reserve University physicists concluded about black holes after spending a year working on complex formulas to calculate the formation of new black holes. In nearly 13 ...
How Time-Traveling Could Affect Quantum Computing
Plenty of nothing: A hole new quantum spin
Electronic devices are always shrinking in size but it's hard to imagine anything beating what researchers at the University of New South Wales have created: a tiny wire that doesn't even use electrons to carry a current.
Transparent aluminium is 'new state of matter'
(PhysOrg.com) -- Oxford scientists have created a transparent form of aluminium by bombarding the metal with the world’s most powerful soft X-ray laser. 'Transparent aluminium' previously only existed in ...
How foamy is spacetime?
Majorana fermion: Physicists observe elusive particle that is its own antiparticle
Princeton University scientists have observed an exotic particle that behaves simultaneously like matter and antimatter, a feat of math and engineering that could yield powerful computers based on quantum ...
