Scientists have, for the very first time, managed to levitate individual nanodiamonds in a vacuum by using a laser. The new findings may create extremely sensitive instruments that could be used for sensing tiny forces and torques.
Scientists may have created a "wormhole" that connects two distant regions of space. They've managed to construct the first experimental "wormhole" that can connect two regions of space magnetically.
Could the world's oldest Koran actually be older than the Prophet Muhammad?
Scientists have figured out how to "squeeze" light one particle at a time. They've successfully measured particles in an experiment that had once been written off as impossible to observe.
Graphene is the super material of the future. Now, though, researchers have found a way to embed metallic nanoparticles in graphene and turn the material into a useful catalyst for fuel cells and other applications.
An Antarctic detector has found particles from beyond our galaxy. The detector has found neutrinos that travelled to Earth from space.
Scientists may have unlocked the secrets of hummingbird tongues.
Most people know about quantum computers. But did you know that it might one day be possible to build computers from DNA?
Researchers have discovered that regular exposure to hydrocarbons (fuels found in many products, ranging from makeup to cleaning commodities), may contribute to a range of clinical conditions--including exposure to hydrocarbons that could lead to brainstem impairment. In this particular study, resea...
Scientists have observed the first ever cosmic muons with the help of a school bus-sized detector.
Physicists have revealed a new quantum computation scheme in which operations occur without a well-defined order, which may be able to accomplish a task more efficiently than a standard quantum computer.
