A new approach to solving the mystery of dark energy

What is behind dark energy—and what connects it to the cosmological constant introduced by Albert Einstein? Two physicists from the University of Luxembourg point the way to answering these open questions of physics.

A new qubit approach for more stable states for quantum computers

Quantum computers can more rapidly process large amounts of data, because they carry out many computation steps in parallel. The information carrier of the quantum computer is a qubit. Qubits do not only possess the information ...

Sun releases strong solar flare

The sun emitted a strong solar flare, peaking at 1:50 p.m. EST on Jan. 9, 2023. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured imagery of the event.

Decoding mega magnetic explosions outside the solar system

Neutron stars and black holes may be stellar corpses, but they are among the most active celestial objects. They produce some of the highest-energy radiation ever observed, and scientists have long puzzled over the physics ...
