For the first time, researchers place an electron in a dual state—neither freed nor bound

The more intense a laser is, the easier should it be to ionise the atom—in other words, to tear the electrons away from the attracting electric field …

New result draws on 30 years of research and development and begins the definitive search for axion particles

Forty years ago, scientists theorized a new kind of low-mass particle that could solve one of the enduring mysteries of nature: what dark matter is …

Neutrino experiment at Fermilab delivers an unprecedented measurement

Tiny particles known as neutrinos are an excellent tool to study the inner workings of atomic nuclei. Unlike electrons or protons, neutrinos have no …


Hunting for dark matter in the smallest galaxies in the Universe

Astrophysicists from the University of Surrey and the University of Edinburgh have created a new method to measure the amount of dark matter at the …

Dark matter isn’t interacting with itself after all

Dark matter is still the shyest particle in physics. New observations show that dark matter in galaxy cluster Abell 3827 stubbornly ignores all other …

A dozen new black holes found in Milky Way’s center

Twelve small black holes spotted in the Milky Way’s center suggest thousands more in the galaxy’s inner region.

New study suggests tens of thousands of black holes exist in Milky Way's center

A Columbia University-led team of astrophysicists has discovered a dozen black holes gathered around Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), the supermassive black …

Underground neutrino experiment sets the stage for deep discovery about matter

If equal amounts of matter and antimatter had formed in the Big Bang more than 13 billion years ago, one would have annihilated the other upon …


Scientists report first results from neutrino mountain experiment

This week, an international team of physicists, including researchers at MIT, is reporting the first results from an underground experiment designed …


Dark matter 'missing' in a galaxy far, far away

Galaxies and dark matter go hand in hand; you typically don't find one without the other. So when researchers uncovered a galaxy, known as …


John Lynch: Kyle Shanahan was initially “in mourning” after Jimmy Garoppolo trade

The San Francisco 49ers are supremely happy that Jimmy Garoppolo is their starting quarterback of the future. The team is so happy about Garoppolo’s …

Astronomers can’t figure out why some black holes got so big so fast

Early supermassive black holes are challenging astronomers’ ideas about how the behemoths grew so quickly.

Scientists detect radio echoes of a black hole feeding on a star

On Nov. 11, 2014, a global network of telescopes picked up signals from 300 million light years away that were created by a tidal disruption flare—an …

One month after extending Kilgore, 49ers trade him

Getty Images<p>When the 49ers pounced on center Weston Richburg, the thinking was the center Daniel Kilgore would be moved to guard. Instead, he has …

Scientists say the dream of unlimited clean energy is about to come true

In just 15 years, the US will be producing unlimited amounts of nearly free, completely green energy. Not only would such an energy holy grail mean …

Massive astrophysical objects governed by subatomic equation

Quantum mechanics is the branch of physics governing the sometimes-strange behavior of the tiny particles that make up our universe. Equations …

Only Dark Matter (And Not Modified Gravity) Can Explain The Universe

If you took a look at all the galaxies in the Universe, measured where all the matter you could detect was, and then mapped out how these galaxies were moving, you’d find yourself quite puzzled. Whereas in the Solar System, the planets orbit the Sun with decreasing speed the farther away from the …

When rotated at a 'magic angle,' graphene sheets can form an insulator or a superconductor

It's hard to believe that a single material can be described by as many superlatives as graphene can. Since its discovery in 2004, scientists have …


The quest to identify the nature of the neutrino’s alter ego is heating up

The search is on for a rare nuclear decay that could prove neutrinos are their own antiparticles and shed light on the universe’s antimatter mystery.

Physicists build bizarre molecules called 'Rydberg polarons'

Using lasers, U.S. and Austrian physicists have coaxed ultracold strontium atoms into complex structures unlike any previously seen in nature.

How we discovered the strange physics of jets from supermassive black holes

Supermassive black holes, which lurk at the heart of most galaxies, are often described as "beasts" or "monsters". But despite this, they are pretty …

Can strongly lensed type Ia supernovae resolve one of cosmology's biggest controversies?

In 1929 Edwin Hubble surprised many people – including Albert Einstein – when he showed that the universe is expanding. Another bombshell came in …


How are hadrons born at the huge energies available in the LHC?

Our world consists mainly of particles built up of three quarks bound by gluons. The process of the sticking together of quarks, called …


Unlocking the secrets of the universe

Long ago, about 400,000 years after the beginning of the universe (the Big Bang), the universe was dark. There were no stars or galaxies, and the …
