Scientists may have made the first ever direct detection of dark matter, the mysterious material that has long puzzled physicists. The findings could mean a whole new way to look at the universe
Scientists have discovered a new subatomic particle that could shed light on the fundamental force of nature that binds the nuclei of atoms. The particle will provide greater understanding of the strong reaction that's found within the protons of an atom's nucleus.
The 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics has officially been awarded to Isamu Akasaki of Meijo University in Japan and to Hiroshi Amano of Nagoya University in Japan and to Shuji Nakamura of the University of California.
Scientists have managed to teleport the quantum state of a photon to a crystal over 25 kilometers of optical fiber.
Understanding cosmic rays is an important part of understanding dark matter. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these rays, shedding light into the nature of the excess of positrons observed in the flux of cosmic rays.
Scientists have created a new detector that may eventually lead to a generation of devices that can peer below the surface of bodies, walls and other objects. Using graphene, scientists have constructed a prototype detector that can see a broad band of wavelengths.
Scientists may have come up with a novel model of dark mater, the mysterious substance that makes up about 80 percent of our universe. The findings could shed new light on the nature of dark matter and show the path for future research.
Belfast Zoo is celebrating the birth of a giraffe calf, which was born after a gestation period of 15 months.
Could our entire world be an illusion? That's the question that scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory are asking.
Scientists may have developed a new way to confine oil spills. They've created a tractor beam on water, which could mean a new way to manipulate currents in a way to help contain environmental pollution.
The big bang may have jumpstarted our universe, but what exactly sparked it? That's a question that has long puzzled scientists. Now, though, they may have a new idea concerned what helped trigger the very beginnings of our universe.
