Physicists and Trevor Bauer on how to invent a whole new slider.
A rare nod to technology over fundamental physics.
Canada's Arthur B. McDonald and Japan's Takaaki Kajita will split the nearly $1M prize
Dark matter makes up much of the cosmos, yet no one knows exactly what it is. Soon, physicists may finally solve one of science's biggest mysteries.
There have been quite a few controversies over the years.
Sure, the Large Hadron Collider has another two decades of cutting-edge science left in it, but physicists are already designing the high energy experiments of the future.
Astrophysicist Adam Frank's new book mixes cosmology with humanity. How does our understanding of the universe and cosmic time inform our daily lives? Especially if time is an illusion?
Cranking out plasma at 100 million degrees
How 'Higgsy' is this particle? More work needs to be done
One of the biggest mysteries of physics could end with what scientists find 4,850 feet below the Black Hills of South Dakota
His manipulation of atoms chilled to near-absolute zero could help create high-temperature superconductors
The world's most prestigious universities have begun posting entire curricula on the Web—for free. Is there such a thing as a free higher-education lunch? I enrolled to find out
Researchers takes steps to observe the ghostly effects of quantum mechanics in objects larger than atoms
The most powerful and complex science experiment in the history of the universe is finally—after 14 years and $10 billion—about to begin. There's no telling what it may find, and that's entirely the point
Physics you can draw
Our resident film physicist tackles the final frontier and finds some key pointers for our own space travels
In her new book, Diandra Leslie-Pelecky covers the science—and the humans—behind America's most popular racing series
Suddenly the U.S. isn't the center of the physics universe. The answer: build the International Linear Colliderâ€”one of the most powerful (and expensive) pieces of equipment on Earth
Physics can't find the biggest thing in the known universe, so it's looking beyond our paltry three dimensions. Michael Moyer enters the zone of insanely hard mathematics, translates what he finds into plain English, and makes it back alive.
