We shouldn't exist. At least, we shouldn't exist according to British cosmologists. They've predicted that the universe shouldn't have lasted more than a second after using data from the latest observations of the sky combined with the recent discovery of the Higgs boson.
Is Earth's magnetic field changing? That might be the case, according to ESA's three-satellite Swarm constellation.
Invisibility cloaks have become a large area of research in recent years. Now, scientists may have discovered a way to create an invisibility cloak that hides an object from the sense of touch.
Water may have a bit of a split personality. By using a computer model, researchers have uncovered the reasons behind water's odd behaviors, such as why its solid state floats.
Researchers have successfully identified the strange quantum effect with the algae survive in very low levels of light.
The latest development in solar technology is the new class of solar sensitive nanoparticles that leads to the development of cheaper and more flexible solar cells.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the massive forces surrounding black holes, and have found that the gravitational fields around them may just eddy and swirl, creating a turbulent region of space.
Scientists have learned a bit more about these black holes and have found that magnetic fields play an impressive role in the systems' dynamics.
The world's best thermometer isn't made of mercury; it's made of light. Physicists have created the most sensitive thermometer yet that's three times more precise than the best thermometers in existence today.
The Kavli Prize is given to scientists in three fields: Astrophysics, Nanoscience, and Neuroscience. The prize for each field is worth $1 million and is awarded by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.
Researchers have created a super-hydrophobic surface that is extremely difficult to wet and makes water to bounce like a ball.
