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 ...
Engineers take big step toward using light instead of wires inside computers
(Phys.org)—Stanford engineers have designed and built a prism-like device that can split a beam of light into different colors and bend the light at right angles, a development that could eventually lead ...

Experiment with speeding ions verifies relativistic time dilation to new level of precision
Study shows graphene able to withstand a speeding bullet
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.
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 ...
