How fast is the universe expanding?

Exactly how fast is the universe expanding? Scientists are still not completely sure, but a Princeton-led team of astrophysicists has used the neutron star merger...
Scientists discover the “missing” interstellar iron in the universe

Scientists discover the “missing” interstellar iron in the universe

Astrophysicists know that iron (chemical symbol: Fe) is one of the most abundant elements in the universe, after lightweight elements such as hydrogen, carbon,...

Einstein’s theory of General Relativity might not be the only way to explain how...

Einstein’s theory of General Relativity is world famous – but it might not be the only way to explain how gravity works and how...

Scientists combine light and matter to make particles with new behaviors

Physicists create ‘doppelganger’ orbits for electrons. Every type of atom in the universe has a unique fingerprint: It only absorbs or emits light at the...
Scientists keep 'Tsunami' power on a silicon chip

Scientists keep ‘Tsunami’ power on a silicon chip

A tsunami holds its wave shape over very long distances across the ocean, retaining its power and 'information' far from its source. In communications science,...
