If you think a Chihuahua doesn't have much in common with a Rottweiler, you might be on to something.
'Accelerator on a chip' demonstrated
In an advance that could dramatically shrink particle accelerators for science and medicine, researchers used a laser to accelerate electrons at a rate 10 times higher than conventional technology in a nanostructured ...
Physicists create tabletop antimatter 'gun'
First experimental signs of a New Physics beyond the Standard Model
The Standard Model, which has given the most complete explanation up to now of the universe, has gaps, and is unable to explain phenomena like dark matter or gravitational interaction between particles. Physicists ...
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 ...
New test may provide 'smoking gun' for modified gravity
Physicists turn to Maxwell’s equations for self-bending light
Dark energy is real, say astronomers
(Phys.org)—Dark energy, a mysterious substance thought to be speeding up the expansion of the Universe is really there, according to a team of astronomers at the University of Portsmouth and LMU University ...
Rethinking the universe: Groundbreaking theory proposed in 1997 suggests a 'multiverse'
Some top scientists are beginning to worry that a radical idea proposed in 1997 by three University of Delaware physicists may be right.
Proof of Solomon's mines found in Israel
New findings from an archaeological excavation led this winter by Dr. Erez Ben-Yosef of Tel Aviv University's Jacob M. Alkow Department of Archaeology and Near Eastern Cultures prove that copper mines in ...
Two collider research teams find evidence of new particle Zc(3900)
Looking at quantum gravity in a mirror
Einstein's theory of gravity and quantum physics are expected to merge at the Planck-scale of extremely high energies and on very short distances. At this scale, new phenomena could arise. However, the Planck-scale ...
World record for compact 'tabletop' particle accelerator
Using one of the most powerful lasers in the world, researchers have accelerated subatomic particles to the highest energies ever recorded from a compact accelerator.
Tevatron scientists announce their final results on the Higgs particle
(Phys.org) -- After more than 10 years of gathering and analyzing data produced by the U.S. Department of Energy's Tevatron collider, scientists from the CDF and DZero collaborations have found their strongest ...
