Einstein’s general relativity theory is questioned but still stands for now

Does the physicist’s theory tell the full story? A detailed analysis of a star’s orbit near supermassive black hole gives a look into how gravity...

Scientists discover family members of Schrödinger’s cat

It has been said that the internet exists chiefly to show videos of cats interacting with boxes. An international team of researchers led by University...

Scientists find first possible 3D quantum spin liquid

There's no known way to prove a three-dimensional "quantum spin liquid" exists, so Rice University physicists and their collaborators did the next best thing: They...

New measurement of universe’s expansion rate is ‘stuck in the middle’

Scientists from Carnegie and the University of Chicago used red giant stars that were observed by the Hubble Space Telescope to make an entirely...

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,...
Scientists capture rare fast radio burst from faraway galaxy

Scientists capture rare fast radio burst from faraway galaxy

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are among the most enigmatic and powerful events in the cosmos. Around 80 of these events--intensely bright millisecond-long bursts of radio...
