We've Been Misreading a Major Law of Physics For The Last 300 Years

But according to a philosopher of language and mathematics, we might have been interpreting Newton's precise wording of his first law of motion slightly wrong all along.

Physicist Discovers 'Paradox-Free' Time Travel Is Theoretically Possible

A few years ago physics student Germain Tobar, from the University of Queensland in Australia, worked out how to "square the numbers" to make time travel viable without the paradoxes.

Scientists Mystified by Rare, High-Energy Cosmic Ray

Scientists in Utah have detected the second-most energetic cosmic ray ever seen. The powerful particle rivals the highest-energy cosmic ray on record, called the Oh-My-God particle, which was spotted in 1991.

'Assembly theory' unifies physics and biology to explain evolution

An international team of researchers has developed a new theoretical framework that bridges physics and biology to provide a unified approach for understanding how complexity and evolution emerge in nature.

Graphene just broke another physics record

The extraordinary material has set a new record for exhibiting magnetoresistance at room temperature.

An AI has just independently discovered alternative physics

After being shown videos of physical phenomena on Earth, the AI ​​has not rediscovered the actual variables we are using; Instead, it actually evolved new variables to explain what it saw.

Clean, limitless power from graphene

U.S. physicists has successfully developed a circuit capable of capturing graphene's thermal motion and converting it into an electrical current. This could  provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices.

Scientists Discover New Electronic State of Matter

A team of U.S. scientists has observed a new state of matter at the interface between two oxide materials. The discovery shows electrons can bind together in ways similar to how quarks combine to form neutrons and protons.

New Charmonium Particle Discovered

Physicists from the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) Collaboration at CERN have discovered a previously unknown particle - a new charmonium particle.

Large Hadron Collider replacement plans unveiled

The "Future Circular Collider" is conceived as a successor to the LHC, and – if given the green light – it would allow physicists to seek answers to some of greatest mysteries in physics.

The Large Hadron Collider Is Shutting Down For Two Years

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is getting a big boost to its performance. Unfortunately, for fans of ground-breaking physics, the whole thing has to be shut down for two years while the work is done.

Expanding Universe Mystery Deepens

An important discrepancy in measurements of the universe’s acceleration has theorists wondering whether we’ve gotten something fundamentally wrong in our understanding of the history of the universe.

Scientists Build Atomic Clocks That Can Measure Changes in Spacetime

This is just the latest result from efforts around the world to create the best-ever atomic clock. Perhaps these clocks could detect dark matter from the way its gravity alters spacetime.

Infinite-dimensional symmetry opens up possibility of a new physics

This surprising conclusion emerges from new work published by theoreticians from Warsaw and Potsdam. The scheme they posit unifies all the forces of nature in a way that is consistent with existing observations.

Plans Revealed for Enormous Particle Collider in China

Scientists this week released a conceptual design report for a next-generation particle accelerator in China, which would serve as a “Higgs boson factory,” as its proponents have called it.
