The Higgs boson particle could have kept our universe from collapsing within a larger multiverse, physicists say.
The Pacific Ocean Neutrino Experiment would turn a massive swath of the Pacific Ocean into nature's own neutrino detector.
Hiding beneath the outer layers of some planets, there may be something spectacular: a constant rain of diamonds.
The recently launched James Webb Telescope should help determine if dark matter is made up of primordial black holes.
The northern lights appear in the sky when charged particles from the sun slam into molecules in the atmosphere, releasing energy in the form of colorful lights.
A multiverse may be a natural prediction of the physical theories that define the beginning of the universe.
In a recent study, researchers determined that about 1% of all the "normal" (that is, not dark) matter in the universe is bound up inside black holes.
Wormholes may be stable after all, a new theory suggests, contradicting previous predictions that these hypothetical shortcuts through space-time would instantly collapse.
Wormholes connect two points in space and time and are a staple of science fiction. But are they possible in the real universe?
Cosmic rays are tiny subatomic particles racing through the universe at nearly the speed of light — and they're not so nice.
There are places in the universe where our laws of physics simply break down. These are called singularities.
James Clerk Maxwell is the scientist responsible for explaining the forces behind the radio in your car, the magnets on your fridge, the heat of a warm summer day and the charge on a battery.
Physicists sifting through old particle accelerator data have found evidence of a highly-elusive, never-before-seen process: a so-called triangle singularity.
A new theory suggests dark matter may have come from quantum bags that got squished together in the early universe.
Asteroids are packed with gold and other valuable resources. And the best way to harvest those metals may be to bring space rocks to Earth.
With its frigid temperatures, remoteness from the sun and general dustiness, changing Mars to be more Earth-like is more challenging than it seems (and it already seems pretty tough).
A superconductor is a material that achieves superconductivity— a state of matter that has no electrical resistance and does not allow magnetic fields to penetrate.
Astrophysicists say our universe might be shaped like a three-dimensional donut, meaning you could point a spaceship in one direction and eventually return to where you started.
Theories that attempt to resolve the so-called black hole information paradox predict that black holes are much more complicated than general relativity suggests.
