A puzzle from the big bang's echo is solved using the technique of gravitational lensing
Planetary scientists wanted the efficient power supply to explore the outer solar system
The proposed project's accelerator ring would be 100 kilometers around and run at seven times the energy of the LHC
The influential Large Underground Xenon experiment, a dark matter detector based in South Dakota, is set to release its first results
Interactions of Higgs bosons and anti-Higgs in the early universe may also have caused the observed asymmetry between matter and antimatter
Argonne National Laboratory is banking on beam-bending magnets in its bid for the world's most focused X-ray light source
A real-life version of Zeno's ancient Greek conundrum could advance quantum computing
The B-mode polarization signal provides a way for astronomers to calculate neutrino masses, as well as to chase a class of "primordial" B-modes that could be used to confirm inflation
U.S. Physicists hope to rejuvenate a classic technology to support neutrino experiments
A newly discovered magnetized neutron star could be used to test Einstein's general theory of relativity
Materials that flip from insulator to conductor could make more energy-efficient transistors, although the metals are not yet close to competing with silicon
Physicists borrow an old tool from geology to focus "cathodoluminescence" and use it to probe the interior layers of metamaterials in lasers, light-based circuits and solar cells
New findings from three teams may solve a 40-year-old mystery regarding the odd electrical behavior of samarium hexaboride, which may be a topological insulator in its bulk form
A framework that relies on college-level mathematics could describe what happens to particles in so-called spacetime rips, gravity fluctuations such as those that occur during the birth of a black hole...
The first results from the GRAIL gravity-mapping mission suggest that the crust's average thickness is only 30 kilometers, not twice that as Apollo seismometers estimated
Pathology records are at the centre of a new disagreement over disgraced medic Andrew Wakefield.
New work in forensics, biodefense and cyber security blossomed after the attacks on New York City, Washington, D.C., and in the skies over Pennsylvania, but increased regulations have also stymied international collaboration as well as work on some infectious diseases...
Stimulus funds for science raise concern about misconduct
About $31 billion in stimulus funds will go to science. Can watchdogs keep track of those funds?
