The antimatter hunter AMS-2, a module on the International Space Station, is searching for the missing pieces of our Universe. The international team running the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) today announced the first results in its search for dark matter, hinting at a new phenomenon and reveali...
An interesting phenomenon involving nanowires and liquid that had been predicted by theorists was now experimentally demonstrated for the first time. The effect can be imagined as drinking a glass of water by just by inserting a solid wire into it and sucking on it as though it were a soda straw.
The first completed section of the NOvA neutrino detector in Minnesota has recorded its initial three-dimensional images of particles. Compiled from data from cosmic rays, these landmark recordings mark a significant milestone in the NOvA neutrino experiment.
A team of Harvard scientists have successfully made the most accurate measurements to date of the magnetic charge of single particles of matter and its mysteriously counterpart, antimatter.
Medical researchers presented a revolutionary wound dressing technology, currently in development and testing stage, which can detect infections and thus alert physicians of the infected wound by a simple color change. Infections in burn victims are hard to detect at the moment, and can be deadly.
Ephemeral vacuum particles may cause fluctuations in the speed of light, changing the way we look at physics.
Astronomers from the European Space Agency's Planck satellite released the most detailed map of the universe ever created, one that showed it to be 80 million to 100 million years older, as well as showing some interesting anomalies that scientists can't yet explain.
Studying the atmosphere of an alien exoplanet, astronomers are getting more clues about the origins of our own solar system.
Scientists at CERN announced Thursday that it’s almost 100% certain that they have found the elusive Higgs boson – a crucial piece of the puzzle when it comes to explain why the universe has mass.
The result of tests carried out by NASA’s Curiosity rover on Martian rocks is suggesting that the red planet might have harbored not only the conditions for life, but life itself in the form of some microbes.
Physicists from Large Hadron Collider said that they have new evidence that shows that the particle discovered in July 2012 is indeed the Higgs Boson- the subatomic particle that's associated with mechanism that gives mass to particles. The next step, physicists say, will be to identify the type of ...
A new aerial view of the ITER fusion reactor construction site shows the four-hectare electrical switchyard that is in place now and ongoing construction nearly everywhere. 500 people currently work from the completed Headquarters building.
