What does the speed of light look like? CalTech researchers built the world's fastest camera to find out.
A single thundercloud is more powerful than even the most potent nuclear plants on Earth. Scientists used cosmic rays to prove it.
Scientists recently unraveled a physics puzzle that has stymied experts since the dawn of quantum mechanics.
Imagine sitting down to dinner with a group of friends, when a laser tickles the water molecules inside your ear. "Hello!" you hear.
A laser pulse glanced off a rubidium atom and entered the quantum world — taking on the weird physics of Schrödinger's cat.
Physicists have built a ring in which pulses of light whip circles around each other and the normal rules that govern light's behavior stop applying.
