Australia hails surprise super-telescope decision
Australia has hailed a surprise decision giving it a role in a radio telescope project aimed at revolutionising astronomy, vowing to draw on its decades of experience in space science.
Many Interacting Worlds theory: Scientists propose existence and interaction of parallel worlds
Griffith University academics are challenging the foundations of quantum science with a radical new theory based on the existence of, and interactions between, parallel universes.
Digital Quantum Battery Could Boost Energy Density Tenfold
Physicists Explain How Human Eyes Can Detect Quantum Effects
Extremely rare transit of Venus to occur on June 5, 2012
A few hours before sunset on June 5th, 2012 residents of the Washington, DC metropolitan area will have a chance to witness one of the rarest celestial phenomena known: a Transit of Venus.
New groundbreaking research may expose new aspects of the universe
No one knows for sure, but it is not unlikely that the universe is constructed in a completely different way than the usual theories and models of today predict. The most widely used model today cannot explain ...
Four reasons why the quantum vacuum may explain dark matter
May the force be with us? Precise measurements test quantum electrodynamics, constrain possible fifth fundamental force
Physicists use offshoot of string theory to describe puzzling behavior of superconductors
(PhysOrg.com) -- Physicists are divided on whether string theory is a viable theory of everything, but many agree that it offers a new way to look at physical phenomena that have otherwise proven difficult ...
Six coronal mass ejections in 24 hours
The sun let loose with at least six coronal mass ejections (CMEs) -- solar phenomena that can send solar particles into space and affect electronic systems in satellites -- from 7 PM ET on September 18, 2011 ...
Quantum mechanics explains efficiency of photosynthesis
Light-gathering macromolecules in plant cells transfer energy by taking advantage of molecular vibrations whose physical descriptions have no equivalents in classical physics, according to the first unambiguous ...
Stanford physicists make new form of matter
(Phys.org) -- Within the exotic world of macroscopic quantum effects, where fluids flow uphill, wires conduct without electrical resistance and magnets levitate, there is an even stranger family of "unconventional" phenomena. ...
Astronomers solve mystery of vanishing energetic electrons in Earth's outer radiation belt
UCLA researchers have explained the puzzling disappearing act of energetic electrons in Earth's outer radiation belt, using data collected from a fleet of orbiting spacecraft.
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 ...
