Experiment reveals evidence for a previously unseen behaviour of light

Beams of light do not, generally speaking, bounce off each other like snooker balls. But at the high energies in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN they have just been observed doing exactly that<p>Light is useful, versatile and perplexing. We see with it - that is, we make sense of our surroundings …

Elements Of Life Discovered Everywhere In The Milky Way

For a long time, humanity has known that the raw ingredients for life weren’t created at the same time as the Universe, but rather needed to be created, over time, from previous generations of stars. Measuring and mapping the abundances of the individual stars within the Milky Way has previously …

The Four Biggest Mistakes Of Einstein's Scientific Life

In science, as in life, you usually get things wrong over and over again before you get it right. That’s particularly true whenever you’re trying something new; no one is born an expert at anything. We have to accumulate a strong foundation — a toolkit for problem-solving, if you will — before …
