Interstellar flight is a real pain in the neck.
There are some odd little particles out there that are bound by the strong nuclear force, but physicists can barely get a glimpse of them before they flit out of existence.
A giant linear collider the size of Manhattan could finally help us find new physics, scientists argue.
Several giant experiments are hunting for neutrinos, the tiniest, most-elusive particles in the universe.
Tiny ripples called magnons could lure even a fleeting, lightweight dark matter particle out of hiding.
The universe really likes its information. It doesn't like to create new information, and it doesn't like to destroy any of its existing information.
'm a particle that really isn't; I vanish before I can even be detected, yet can be seen. I break your understanding of physics but don't overhaul your knowledge. Who am I?
A recent search for oddball supersymmetric particles, which could explain some of the weirdness of the universe, came up empty-handed.
Mad scientists through the ages have dreamed of holding the world hostage by threatening to destroy the whole thing. Here's how that could work.
These tiny subatomic particles, showering down from the depths of space, continue to surprise (and annoy) physicists chasing them.
For the precocious hunter of off-Earth life, the Drake equation is the ever-ready, go-to toolkit for estimating just how (not) lonely humans are in the Milky Way galaxy. But it's not useful.
As good skeptics, we shouldn't immediately believe general relativity's tangle of mathematics at first blush. Instead, we need evidence. Good evidence.
