Missing gamma-ray blobs shed new light on dark matter, cosmic magnetism

Missing gamma-ray blobs shed new light on dark matter, cosmic magnetism

When astrophysicists look at the gamma-ray glow from a galaxy outside our own, all they typically see is a small spot because the galaxy...

Scientist put forward a roadmap for quantum internet development

A quantum internet may very well be the first quantum information technology to become reality. Researchers at QuTech in Delft, The Netherlands, published a...
New study sets a size limit for undiscovered subatomic particles

New study sets a size limit for undiscovered subatomic particles

A new study suggests that many theorized heavy particles, if they exist at all, do not have the properties needed to explain the predominance...
New study brings us closer to understanding the universe

New study brings us closer to understanding the universe

The scientific community can relax. The electron is still round. At least for now. In a new study, researchers at Northwestern, Harvard and Yale universities examined...
Dandelion seeds reveal a new form of natural flight

Dandelion seeds reveal a new form of natural flight

The extraordinary flying ability of dandelion seeds is possible thanks to a form of flight that has not been seen before in nature, research...

Double dust ring test could spot migrating planets

New research by a team led by an astrophysicist at the University of Warwick has a way of finally telling whether newly forming planets...
Not everything is where it seems to be

Not everything is where it seems to be

With modern optical imaging techniques, the position of objects can be measured with a precision that reaches a few nanometers. These techniques are used in...

Scientists discover a direct relative of gravitational wave source

New observations suggest that kilonovae -- immense cosmic explosions that produce silver, gold and platinum--may be more common than thought On October 16, 2017, an...
When light, not heat, causes melting

When light, not heat, causes melting

Study reveals the details of light-induced phase changes. The way that ordinary materials undergo a phase change, such as melting or freezing, has been studied...

New half-light half-matter particles may hold the key to a computing revolution

Scientists have discovered new particles that could lie at the heart of a future technological revolution based on photonic circuitry, leading to superfast, light-based...
