Largest yellow hypergiant star spotted
ESO's Very Large Telescope has revealed the largest yellow star—and one of the 10 largest stars found so far. This hypergiant has been found to measure more than 1,300 times the diameter of the Sun, and ...
Simulations uncover 'flashy' secrets of merging black holes (w/ Video)
(Phys.org)—According to Einstein, whenever massive objects interact, they produce gravitational waves—distortions in the very fabric of space and time—that ripple outward across the universe at the ...
The world's most stable laser also promises heightened test precision
(Phys.org)—The world's most stable laser – with frequency variation of no more than 2 parts in 10,000 trillion – has been developed and tested by an international collaboration of scientists at NIST/JILA ...

Primordial weirdness: Did the early universe have 1 dimension?
(PhysOrg.com) -- Did the early universe have just one spatial dimension? That's the mind-boggling concept at the heart of a theory that University at Buffalo physicist Dejan Stojkovic and colleagues proposed in 2010.
The music of gravitational waves
A team of scientists and engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has brought the world one step closer to "hearing" gravitational waves -- ripples in space and time predicted by Albert Einstein in the ...
