Physics of 'green waves' could make city traffic flow more smoothly
Physicists find a new way to slow the speed of light
New analysis shows a way to self-propel subatomic particles
Some physical principles have been considered immutable since the time of Isaac Newton: Light always travels in straight lines. No physical object can change its speed unless some outside force acts on it.
