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.
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.
Can you imagine hearing light? That's exactly what a new device does. The technology "listens" for light waves and could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum-the terahertz range.
Scientists have created a super-hydrophobic material that's so repellent, it causes water to almost act like a solid.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the biomechanics of the necks of ants, potentially unlocking the secrets to their strength.
Creating matter from light? It sounds like something out of science fiction, right? Well scientists have managed to take something that seems improbable and devise an experiment to make it possible.
