Black hole models contradicted by hands-on tests at Sandia's Z machine

Black hole models contradicted by hands-on tests at Sandia’s Z machine

Small cracks in basic theories. A long-standing but unproven assumption about the X-ray spectra of black holes in space has been contradicted by hands-on experiments...
Are we made of atoms from distant galaxies?

Are we made of atoms from distant galaxies?

New research suggests that up to half of the matter in the Milky Way may come from galaxies far, far away. Scientists say this could...
