This New Year's, people around the world will be popping open bottles of champagne to celebrate the stroke of midnight. But what's the best way to pour this bubbly beverage, and what gives it the bubbles in the first place?
Scientists may have detected a possible signal from dark matter. They've picked up an atypical photon emission in X-rays coming from space, which could be evidence for the existence of a particle of dark matter.
Soon, researchers may be dealing with a compact accelerator. Using one of the most powerful lasers in the world, physicists have accelerated subatomic particles to the highest energies ever recorded from a compact accelerator.
The intermittent light emitted from pulsars allows scientists to verify Einstein's theory of relativity. However, this theory could be analyzed more effectively if a pulsar with a black hole were found. Now, scientists have announced that this fact isn't the case in two particular instances.
Where is most of Earth's carbon located? It turns out that the majority of it can be found within our planet's inner core. This makes the core into the largest carbon reservoir on our planet, according to the new model created by scientists.
Forget about Kevlar; graphene may be the new bullet-proof material. Scientists have taken a new look at graphene's strength by shooting it with microbullets.
Why didn't the universe collapse immediately after the Big Bang? That's a question that physicists have been struggling with for years. Now, they may just have their answer.
There may be a new method to detect dark matter. Physicists have taken a closer look at the current techniques and believe that they may just have a new way to detect elusive dark matter.
It turns out that turbulence may be responsible for strengthening our planet's magnetic field.
Physicists have made a breakthrough with lasers. They've engineered a spiral laser beam and used it to create a whirlpool of hybrid light-matter particles called polaritons.
Scientists have announced that they successfully transmitted twisted light over a large distance outdoors for the very first time.
Last year, CERN announced that it had discovered a new elementary particle, the Higgs particle, also long known as the 'God particle.' Now, scientists are taking a second look at the finding and believe that this particle wasn't the Higgs particle at all and may just look like it.
