Physicists study magnetism with the roles of position and momentum reversed
Long-searched-for glueball could soon be detected
Physicists extend entanglement in Einstein experiment
Gravity may have saved the universe after the Big Bang, say researchers
(Phys.org) —New research by a team of European physicists could explain why the universe did not collapse immediately after the Big Bang.
Russian researchers find more evidence to support notion that lightning is caused by cosmic rays
Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy
The central mystery of quantum mechanics is that small chunks of matter sometimes seem to behave like particles, sometimes like waves. For most of the past century, the prevailing explanation of this conundrum ...
New principle may help explain why nature is quantum
Like small children, scientists are always asking the question 'why?'. One question they've yet to answer is why nature picked quantum physics, in all its weird glory, as a sensible way to behave. Researchers ...
New theory suggests way to teleport energy long distances
Physicists suggest theory versus observational differences in the sun could be due to dark matter
New analysis shows a way to self-propel subatomic particles
Some physical principles have been considered immutable since the time of Isaac Newton: Light always travels in straight lines. No physical object can change its speed unless some outside force acts on it.
LHCb experiment observes two new baryon particles never seen before
(Phys.org) —Today the collaboration for the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of two new particles in the baryon family. The particles, known as the Xi_b'- and Xi_b*- ...
World's largest particle collider ready to restart in 'days'
Physicists have fixed a short-circuit at the world's largest proton smasher, making the particle-hunting machine ready for a restart "within days' time" after a two-year shutdown.
Could a new proposed particle help to detect dark matter?
Researchers at the University of Southampton have proposed a new fundamental particle which could explain why no one has managed to detect 'Dark Matter', the elusive missing 85 per cent of the Universe's ...
Physicists detect process even rarer than the long-sought Higgs particle
(Phys.org) —Scientists running the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest and most powerful "atom smasher," report the first evidence of a process that can be used to test ...
