Goodbye Big Bang, hello black hole? A new theory of the universe's creation
Could the famed "Big Bang" theory need a revision? A group of theoretical physicists suppose the birth of the universe could have happened after a four-dimensional star collapsed into a black hole and ejected ...

Speed-of-light 'nano-camera' produces 3D translucent objects
A $500 "nano-camera" that can operate at the speed of light has been developed by researchers in the MIT Media Lab.
Does light experience time?
Have you ever noticed that time flies when you're having fun? Well, not for light. In fact, photons don't experience any time at all. Here's a mind-bending concept that should shatter your brain into pieces.
Japanese universities develop new world's fastest camera
How to test the twin paradox without using a spaceship
Forget about anti-ageing creams and hair treatments. If you want to stay young, get a fast spaceship. That is what Einstein's Theory of Relativity predicted a century ago, and it is commonly known as "twin ...
Algorithm recovers speech from vibrations of potato-chip bag filmed through soundproof glass
Researchers at MIT, Microsoft, and Adobe have developed an algorithm that can reconstruct an audio signal by analyzing minute vibrations of objects depicted in video. In one set of experiments, they were ...
Ephemeral vacuum particles induce speed-of-light fluctuations
New research shows that the speed of light may not be fixed after all, but rather fluctuates.
What time is it in the universe?
Flavor Flav knows what time it is. At least he does for Flavor Flav. Even with all his moving and accelerating, with the planet, the solar system, getting on planes, taking elevators, and perhaps even some ...
Physicists use dysprosium to put bounds on maximum speed of electrons
Albert Einstein's assertion that there's an ultimate speed limit – the speed of light – has withstood countless tests over the past 100 years, but that didn't stop University of California, Berkeley, postdoc Michael Hohensee ...
Variables of nature
Within physics there are certain physical quantities that play a central role. These are things such as the mass of an electron, or the speed of light, or the universal constant of gravity. We aren't sure ...
