Is the time crystal really an otherworldly revolution, leveraging quantum computing that will change physics forever?
On Nov. 13, 1946, a scientist dropped crushed dry ice from a plane into supercooled stratus clouds.
They say that seein’ is believin’. But everything we see has to have a scientific explanation. When you look at the Sun on a day where there’s a clear sky, […]
Researchers have discovered 830-million-year-old microbes living inside a salt rock on Earth. Could the same occur on Mars?
The drive would provide enough thrust for a spacecraft to travel near the speed of light using only electricity, says physicist Jim Woodward.
New analysis of Apollo 17 sample reveals clues to the Moon's violent history.
If you forgot to defrost your turkey, definitely don’t put it in a deep fryer. Every year, households all across the United States face a troubling dilemma with no good solutions: […]
A lucky discovery involving lithium-sulfur batteries has a legitimate chance to revolutionize how we power our world.
The world is changing, and technology is driving that change. Today, that observation is about as compelling as the insight that water runs downhill. It’s just what technology (and water) […]
From wearable electronics to microscopic sensors to telemedicine, new advances like graphene and supercapacitors are bringing "impossible" electronics to life.
Our Universe requires dark matter in order to make sense of things, astrophysically. Could massive photons do the trick?
The laws of physics aren’t changing. The Earth is. When it comes to any physical science, we know that the fundamental rules governing how the Universe works remain constant with time. […]
The natural wonders of Mauritius include the spectacular sight of an underwater waterfall. Here's the science of how it works.
Construction is nearly complete for a camera that will take 3,200-megapixel panoramas of the southern night sky.
The scientists, not the fossil fuel industry, were right all along. Back in 1990, the world’s top climate scientists convened to put together a report on the state of Earth’s climate. […]
The Planck length is a lot smaller than anything we’ve ever accessed. But is it a true limit? If you wanted to understand how our Universe operates, you’d have to examine […]
Two stellar mass black holes, if they merge in the vicinity of a supermassive black hole, could have their gravitational wave signal affected by the strongly curved space around them. […]
Thou shalt not conclude “aliens” from insufficient data. When it comes to what’s out there in this Universe, perhaps the only thing that’s greater than our cosmic ignorance is the […]
A recent headline claimed they could. But if gamma-rays are just a form of light, don’t they have to travel at light-speed? There’s an ultimate speed limit in the Universe: […]
Black hole mergers are some of the most energetic events in the Universe. Could the gravitational waves they produce ever harm us? The Universe is not a static, stable place. Out […]
What qualifies someone for the top position in American government?
Time crystals have been detected in an unexpected place: monoammonium phosphate, a compound found in fertilizer and 'grow your own crystal' kits.
The organisms were anchored to a boulder 900 meters beneath the ice, living a cold, dark existence miles away from the open ocean.
A new NASA report shakes up lunar geology.
