A strange, quantum material actually shrinks when it's warmed up. Scientists are investigating a substance that unlike most materials, shrinks when it gets hot.
Researchers may have overcome a crucial hurdle in quantum computing. They've demonstrated a two-qubit logic gate, which is the central building block of a quantum computer.
The Nobel Prize in Physics for 2015 has officially been awarded to Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald for their key contributions to the experiments which have demonstrated that neutrinos change density.
Physicists may have managed to shrink the particle accelerator. They've managed to build the first prototype of a miniature particle accelerator that uses terahertz radiation instead of radio frequency structures.
Each year, hundreds of people test their mettle by creating a trebuchet and then seeing how far they can hurl a pumpkin across a field. But how does trebuchets work?
Through the fermentaion of whisky, biofuel can be produced using the residue from the whisky industry, according to a recent study.
Fusion reactors could actually become an economically viable way to generate electricity within a few decades.
We may just be one step closer to creating an actual lightsaber. Scientists have figured out how to stick photons together, creating the first ever "molecules" of light.
Imagine shooting lightning out of the sky with the help of lasers. That's exactly what researchers are aiming for. They've created new techniques that bring lasers as lightning rods closer to reality.
Scientists may have developed a theory to explain why dark matter has evaded direct detection.
Scientists have used a powerful microscope to image the three-dimensional positions of individual atoms to a precision of 19 trillionths of a meter, which is several times smaller than a hydrogen atom.
