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.
Scientists have taken a closer look at mysterious dark matter and its role when it comes to the formation of galaxies and the structure of the universe.
Scientists have managed to detect the smallest force ever to be measured with a groundbreaking technique.
University of Cambridge engineers have managed to harness the equivalent of three tons of force inside a golf ball-sized sample of material that is normally as fragile as fine china.
Astronomers have uncovered a new clue when it comes to understanding mysterious dark matter. They've used ESA and NASA high-energy observatories in order to learn a bit more about the elusive ingredient of our universe.
