Machine-learning technique reveals ‘invisible’ objects in the dark

Small imperfections in a wine glass or tiny creases in a contact lens can be tricky to make out, even in good light. In almost...

Galileo satellites prove Einstein’s Relativity Theory to highest accuracy yet

Europe's Galileo satellite navigation system – already serving users globally – has now provided a historic service to the physics community worldwide. This enables the...

Scientists detect biggest known black-hole collision

Scientists have detected ripples in space and time, known as gravitational waves, from the biggest known black-hole collision that formed a new black hole...

Scientists create tiny droplets of early universe matter

Researchers have created tiny droplets of the ultra-hot matter that once filled the early universe, forming three distinct shapes and sizes: circles, ellipses and...

New theory could explain missing 95 percent of the Universe

A new toy model proposes a way to unify dark energy and dark matter in our Universe. Scientists at the University of Oxford may have...

Scientists enter unexplored territory in superconductivity search

Scientists mapping out the quantum characteristics of superconductors--materials that conduct electricity with no energy loss--have entered a new regime. Using newly connected tools named OASIS...
