What would you see in a black hole?

What would it be like to fly a spacecraft into a black hole? Marcus Woo investigates.<p>Something about a black hole just pulls you in. Sure, its gravity is so strong that not even light can elude its grasp. But, there's something else, something harder to pinpoint. Maybe it's a black hole's absolute …

Scientists just discovered a new state of matter that could revolutionize how we use energy

Most of the time, we can easily distinguish between a solid, liquid, and gas simply by using our eyes. But material scientists who study these three states as well as the more bizarre examples — like plasmas, colloids, and Bose-Einstein condensates— take a deeper look at the properties of each …
