Scientists have discovered exotic pear-shaped atoms that may hold the clue to understanding the mystery of why more matter than antimatter exists in our Universe.
Scientists around the world are looking at multiple methods of bringing the stars down to earth, and one of the main alternatives is known as a stellarator.
After a decade of hard work a team of engineers from the Harvard University have built the world’s smallest aerial drones that are half the size of the paper clip and weighs less than a tenth of a gram. Inspired by the biology of a fly, the world’s first smallest controllable, flying, insect siz...
Counter-intuitively, gold nanoparticles on titanium were found to function as a very useful catalyst in chemical reactions, and until now it was a mystery how the passive and stable precious metal could work in this way.
Up or down? Antimatter is matter's opposite, so wouldn't it make sense that if matter falls down then antimatter would "fall" up? Scientists have taken a new look at the possibility of antigravity.
Scientists at Purdue University have combined an atomic force microscope (AFM) and a nuclear magnetic resonance system to craft the perfect biomedical tool that could reveal cellular secrets not accessible before.
Researchers have now found a way to make nanostructures, like single molecules, optically visible using a new type of super-resolution microscopy that until now only worked by using fluorescent dyes, delivering a very important new tool for biomedical and nanotechnology research.
New research shows that movement of the ring-like molecule pyrrole over a metal surface runs counter to the centuries-old laws of 'classical' physics that govern our everyday world.
The IceCube neutrino observatory, a particle detector encompassing a cubic kilometer of ice at the South Pole that records the interactions of the nearly massless sub-atomic particle, recorded a very rare event never seen before. IceCube searches for neutrinos from the most violent astrophysical sou...
We may have some new answers when it comes to Einstein's gravity theory. A strange stellar pair, which includes a massive neutron star in orbit with a companion white dwarf star, has allowed researchers to put two competing theories of gravity to the test.
An impressive infographic style animation shows the vast computer power, including a globe spanning network of data centers, that is needed to filter through the enormous amount of data generated by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments.
