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.
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.
What's that you said? Scientists can now listen to your conversation with the help of a potato-chip bag?
Scientists have discovered a new way to "bottle" sound waves. They've developed a technique for generating acoustic bottles in the open air that can bend the paths of sound waves along prescribed convex trajectories.
Superman can fly, leap over buildings, and accomplish feats that are, well, pretty superhuman. Yet this superhero doesn't just defy logic with his spectacular feats; he also defies the fundamental physics law of the conservation of energy.
When you have something as tiny as bacteria and spermatozoa, movement becomes a whole new challenge. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at self-propulsion in a bid to potentially design tiny, nano-scale swimming machines.
Astronomers are learning more about our universe each day. Now, they've taken a closer look at dwarf galaxies and have found that they don't "swarm" around larger ones like bees, but actually "dance" in orderly, disc-shaped orbits.
Scientists have uncovered the secret to twisting light at will. They've created a new metamaterial that shows extraordinary properties that's not typical of regular materials.
Scientists are learning a bit more about the giant planets of our universe. They've experimentally re-created the conditions that exist deep within planets such as Jupiter and Uranus.
