A state-of-the-art optical atomic clock has officially begun to tick. Developed by scientists and the first of its kind in Poland, the clock is just one of a handful of this caliber in the world.
One of the most powerful events in the universe occurs when two black holes collide. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this event and have learned a bit more about what happens when two orbiting black holes become one.
Stars and planets are made of particles--not antiparticles. This asymmetry, which favors matter slightly, has puzzled scientists for years. Now, though, a group of physicists may have solved this mystery
Most people who make an early morning commute probably know that they're more likely to spill their coffee than their latte. But why does that happen? Scientists have taken a closer look at the physics involved and have found that it all has to do with foam.
The Large Hadron Collider is almost ready to be up and back in action after its shutdown nearly two years ago. So what's in store for the most powerful particle accelerator on Earth? That's a good question.
In March of last year, scientists announced that they had observed the portion of cosmic background radiation, which is the fossil radiation from the Big Bang, generated by gravitational waves. Now, scientists have announced that more evidence is needed.
A newly proposed particle may be able to explain why no one has managed to detect dark matter. Scientists have found that this particle, if it exists, would interact strongly with normal matter and may solve the mystery of dark matter.
Scientists may have just managed to slow down the speed of light traveling in free space. The new feat is one that, before now, was thought to be impossible.
Sounds waves passing through the air are considered "elastic waves." They travel at the surface or through a material without causing any permanent changes to the material's makeup. Now, though, scientists have developed a material that has the ability to control these waves.
Is glass a solid, or a liquid? Watching a glass blower at work, you can see the liquid nature of hot glass. Now, scientists have combined computer simulations and information theory to show that glass is, in reality, a true solid.
According to the predictions of quantum mechanics, microscopic objects can take different paths at the same time. In fact, researchers have found that Caesium atoms can take two paths at the same time.
