The hunt is on for a new quantum state of matter called Supersolidity.
This state has never been conclusively observed but it would resemble another quantum state that has…superfluidity.
A superfluid is incredibly cool (barely above absolute zero in fact). It has zero viscosity which means it can actually climb up an out of a [...]
Scientists may soon have a direct image of the black hole in the center of our galaxy.Using a virtual telescope as big as the earth, they may have for the first time apicture of the actual shadow a black hole.
Scientists met recently to discuss this project. It has probably one of the coolestnames for [...]
A 40 year old moon mystery may have been solved recently.
It looks like we may have two viable theories why some moon rocks are magnetized even though the moon has no magnetic field. Not only that, up until recently, there was no theoretical mechanism by which the moon could even create a magnetic field.
Einstein was wrong! We’ve found something that travels faster than light!
By now, the allegation of physicists at CERN has gone viral through every major news outlet. Indeed, the announcement does more than tickle the fancy; it seems to vindicate every sci-fi fan who stubbornly insisted the light-barrier would eventually be defeated. Wormholes, hyperspace, [...]
Consider this a Wednesday roundup of the most awesome variety. Open Pandora’s box, pluck the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, and watch what we are doing with Promethean fires.
For the first time in history, scientists have managed to create a working engine from a single molecule. Our Industrial Revolution audacity has [...]
