Theorists apply loop quantum gravity theory to black hole
Is it real? Physicists propose method to determine if the universe is a simulation
Voyager 1 has left the solar system, says new study
(Phys.org) —Voyager 1 appears to have at long last left our solar system and entered interstellar space, says a University of Maryland-led team of researchers.
Two collider research teams find evidence of new particle Zc(3900)
New experiments challenge fundamental understanding of electromagnetism
(Phys.org)—A cornerstone of physics may require a rethink if findings at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are confirmed. Recent experiments suggest that the most rigorous predictions ...
Now it is more likely than ever: There must be particles out there smaller than Higgs particle
Nobody has seen them yet; particles that are smaller than the Higgs particle. However theories predict their existence, and now the most important of these theories have been critically tested. The result: The existence of ...
Model-independent measurement of dark matter mass could lead to future discoveries
Quark asymmetries hint at physics beyond the Standard Model
New knowledge about the remarkable properties of black holes
Black holes are surrounded by many mysteries, but now researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute, among others, have come up with new groundbreaking theories that can explain several of their properties. The ...
Physics duo discover 13 new solutions to Newtonian three-body orbit problem
On the origins of the Schrodinger equation
Quirky quark combination creates exotic new particle
Since the spectacular discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the gigantic particle accelerator outside Geneva, have suffered a bit of a drought when it comes ...
ATLAS sees Higgs boson decay to fermions
The ATLAS experiment at CERN has released preliminary results that show evidence that the Higgs boson decays to two tau particles. Taus belong to a group of subatomic particles called the fermions, which ...
Math formula gives new glimpse into the magical mind of Ramanujan
(Phys.org)—December 22 marks the 125th anniversary of the birth of Srinivasa Ramanujan, an Indian mathematician renowned for somehow intuiting extraordinary numerical patterns and connections without the ...
