Here's what the hairiest problem in math can teach us about wind, antennas and nuclear fusion.
The stunning experiment, which reconstructs the properties of entangled photons from a 2D interference pattern, could be used to design faster quantum computers.
Superconductors that work at temperatures much higher than absolute zero have befuddled scientists since they were discovered. A new theory might be about to change that.
When supermassive black holes barrel toward collision, they can reach speeds of up to 1/10th the speed of light, new research suggests.
For the first time, researchers were able to transmit, or "tunnel," sound waves across extremely small distances between two crystals in a vacuum.
Strange metals have baffled scientists since their discovery. Now, theorists have finally come up with an explanation.
The discovery of wobbling muons promises to spark a revolution in physics, but more results are needed to know for sure.
The ability of a gene to keep functioning despite mutations shows a surprising link to fundamental math.
The transparent, chargeless quasiparticle could shed more light on the underlying mechanics of superconductivity
