The art of invisibility and the perfect cat's eye
(PhysOrg.com) -- In recent years scientists have explored the impossible by developing invisibility or 'cloaking' devices, but can the same technology also help make things more visible?
A wrinkle in space-time: Math shows how shockwaves could crinkle space
Mathematicians at UC Davis have come up with a new way to crinkle up the fabric of space-time -- at least in theory.
