The measurement of distance to our neighboring galaxy, the large Magellanic Cloud(LMC), was sharpened to an accuracy of 2%, astronomers claim.
Physicists announced today, speaking at the ongoing Moriond conference in La Thuile, Italy, that the new particle discovered at CERN last year that is most likely the Higgs boson is looking more and more like the real thing. However, more analysis is still required before a definitive statement can ...
The black hole firewall paradox is incorrect, according to a new study.
Theoretically expected, it was now experimentally proven by scientists for the first time that the fascinating new material graphene is also highly efficient at converting light into electricity--which makes it an ideal candidate to boost the sensitivity of imaging sensors and also to increase the m...
The vortex knot was a mere theory a century ago, but now physicists at the University of Chicago have created a vortex knot in a lab environment for the first time, the university said in a statement.
With a method to efficiently manipulate light on a superconducting chips, physicists at UC Santa Barbara are adding another module to build the quantum devices of the future, which includes quantum computers.
Heisenberg's famous Uncertainty Principle may not be as uncertain as once thought. Researchers have applied a recently developed technique to directly measure the polarization of light
Using videos and a bit of trigonometry Colombian astronomers figured out the trajectory of the meteor that injured 1,000 in Chelyabinsk, Russia earlier this month.
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bristol, UK, and the University of Queensland, Australia, has demonstrated a quantum algorithm that performs a true calculation for the first time.
Astronomers from the University of Antioquia in Medellin, Colombia have traced the origin of the meteorite that fell in Central Russia and Urals regions injuring over thousand people earlier this month.
Today was not a great end for NASCAR. Michael Annett was unfortunately taken to the Halifax Health Medical Center after a multi-car crash near the end of the Nationwide Series hit the driver heart on the Daytona International Speedway.
In an effort to build a next generation of super-colliders to gain ever deeper insights into the fundamental mechanisms of the universe, and especially to examine the properties of the Higgs-like particle that was discovered by the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva last year, a new partnership called ...
