Once again, a major experiment reveals no deviations in the fundamental particle’s shape, complicating the search for new physics
The way worlds form from dust may also explain other phenomena throughout the universe—and right here on Earth
The Breakthrough awards, each worth U.S. $3 million, honor advances in the life sciences, physics and mathematics
After a years-long intellectual journey, three mathematicians have discovered that a problem of central importance in physics is impossible to solve—and that means other big questions may be undecidable, too
