Astronomers may have just solved the mysteries of one of the most fascinating nearby star systems. Scientists have managed to create the first viable model for the planetary system orbiting one of the first stars discovered to have planets.
Physicists may have uncovered a new key to unlocking the mysteries of physics: quantum turbulence.
Pee and other human waste certainly aren't the most glamorous aspects of space, but all the same, they're a practical problem for those in orbit. For instance, there comes the critical question: What to do with astronaut waste? Fortunately, scientists have come up with a new process that can recy...
Scientists at the University of Darmstadt, in Germany, have trapped a pulse of light inside a crystal for a minute, and used it to store an image, raising the possibility of light-based computers that could work faster than today’s electronic processors and transistors.
Using the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) Collaboration, scientists have confirmed the existence of exotic hadrons, a type of matter that cannot be classified within the traditional quark model.
t turns out that coughs and sneezes create gas clouds that keep potentially infectious droplets aloft for far longer than researchers previously realized.
Quantum computing could be closer than ever. Scientists have used a laser to place individual rubidium atoms near the surface of a lattice of light, which means that there's a new method for connecting particles which, in turn, could help develop quantum computing systems.
Researchers have made novel measurements of the universe by using BOSS, the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey, when the universe was a mere three billion years old.
The fundamental laws of thermodynamics do not apply to objects on the nanoscale to the extent they do in our macroscopic world. A team of researchers describe how heat can transfer from cold to hot objects in the nanoworld.
System could provide first method for filtering light waves based on direction.
In the world of quantum science, Alice and Bob have been talking to one another for years. Charlie joined the conversation a few years ago, but now with spacelike separation, scientists have measured that their communication occurs faster than the speed of light.
Physics is on the front pages of newspapers around the world. This time it is because of the announcement made by a team of scientists who seem to have found indirect evidence for the existence of “primordial gravitational waves”.
