Cotton mask fibers prove 33 percent more effective at blocking viruses in trials.
Resilience training isn't just for soldiers. It can be instrumental in helping employees recover from difficulties and embrace change in the workplace.
More than any other of Einstein's equations, E = mc² is the most recognizable to people. But what does it all mean?
The Poisson distribution has everyday applications in science, finance, and insurance. To compare the results of some biomedical studies, more people ought to be familiar with it.
Yet another ocean monster has been discovered.
Physics demands that it couldn’t be any other way. Here’s why. Ask anyone — even someone with no background in science — to name something that Einstein did, and odds are they’ll come back with […]
The laws of physics state that you can't create or destroy matter without also creating or destroying an equal amount of antimatter. So how are we here?
The universe is filled with unlikely events, but is also full of ways to fool ourselves.
The new feature uses Amazon's neural text-to-speech technology, which allows it to produce phrases that weren't priorly recorded.
Often viewed as a theoretical, calculational tool only, the Lamb Shift proved their existence. If you spend enough time listening to theoretical physicists, it starts to sound like there are […]
Drop sodium in water, and a violent, even explosive reaction will occur. But quantum physics is needed to explain why.
Previously, only the brightest and most active galaxies could pierce the obscuring wall of cosmic dust. At last, normal galaxies break through.
Move over, IC 1101. You may be impressively large, but you never stood a chance against the largest known galaxy: Alcyoneus.
The majority of the matter in our Universe isn't made of any of the particles in the Standard Model. Could the axion save the day?
The Demo-2 mission represents a new era for American spaceflight.
On Friday, the moon will pass through the Earth's outer shadow, known as the penumbra.
Just 12 million light-years away, the galaxies Messier 81 and 82 offer a nearby preview of the Milky Way-Andromeda merger.
Hubble, our greatest space-based observatory today, is just the beginning. The Hubble Space Telescope has been astronomy’s most revolutionary observatory in history. The stars and galaxies we see today didn’t […]
We haven't seen a partial eclipse lasting this long since 1440, and won't again until 2669. North America is perfectly positioned for 2021's.
A setup of the system used by the BaBar collaboration to probe time-reversal symmetry violation directly. The ϒ(4s) particle was created, it decays into two mesons (which can be a […]
If it weren’t for a subatomic quantum rule, our Universe would be vastly different. In many ways, our views of the distant Universe are the closest things we’ll ever get […]
For centuries, men prevented women from writing music. These classical composers broke with social norms and made their mark on history.
DribbleUp is the perfect solution to recess at home.
