Get stronger in only three seconds per day? New research shows that it is possible.
Shooting star or piece of space dust?
Remote work is here to stay. Here are a few ways to enhance remote training in a post-pandemic future.
There are an estimated two trillion galaxies within the observable Universe. Most are already unreachable, and the situation only gets worse.
How much we enjoy a conversation can all be a matter of timing — specifically, how long it takes us to respond to what was just said.
The length of a day oscillates slightly every six years. This was a surprising discovery made last decade. We might now know why.
The concept of ‘relativistic mass’ has been around almost as long as relativity has. But is it valid? No matter who you are, where you are, or how quickly you’re moving, […]
Memory errors may actually indicate a way in which the human cognitive system is “optimal” or “rational.”
65 million years ago, an asteroid strike caused the 5th great mass extinction. Could we save Earth, today, from a similar event?
When Olympic athletes perform dazzling feats of athletic prowess, they are using the same principles of physics that gave birth to stars and planets.
Out of all the galaxies we know, only a few little ones are missing dark matter. At last, we finally understand why.
Both made monumental contributions that were far ahead of their time. It’s hard to believe, but the idea that the Universe was dominated not by normal matter but rather by dark […]
Technology has advanced at a blinding pace in the past 150 years. That won’t always happen.
Although most of the Universe's mass is dark matter, which gravitates just as well as normal matter, it still can't make black holes.
Particle physics needs a new collider to supersede the Large Hadron Collider. Muons, not electrons or protons, might hold the key.
All scientific theories, at some level, are wrong. That’s why consensus is so vital. There are two important and common words that, when used scientifically, have a very different meaning than […]
The universe is filled with unlikely events, but is also full of ways to fool ourselves.
The first world that humans should inhabit beyond the Earth is the Moon, not Mars. Here's why terraforming our lunar neighbor is so appealing.
A thought experiment from 1867 leads scientists to design a groundbreaking information engine.
