Mathematicians have known how to solve something called an S-unit equation for several years. However, the process is so convoluted that few can actually use it to tackle their problems.
The ghostly 'quasiparticles' have barely any material existence, but physicists are still managing to manipulate them into uncanny shapes.
What does the speed of light look like? CalTech researchers built the world's fastest camera to find out.
Lanthanum, diamond crushers and advanced computer models are changing the hunt for this extreme quantum mechanical effect.
Cryptocurrencies aren't just alternatives to government-issued forms of money. Most of them are designed to be very different
A team of physicists used lasers to create "supercrystals," even as the structures fought to not exist at all.
Scientists recently unraveled a physics puzzle that has stymied experts since the dawn of quantum mechanics.
The glass shouldn't have boiled. But it did. Physicists had to figure out why that wasn't against the laws of physics.
The quarks inside atoms move slower than the quarks inside free-floating protons and neutrons. But why?
A 12-year-old kid from Tennessee created a nuclear reaction in his family's playroom. Here's how he did it.
An erroneous alert about a nuclear attack was sent to Hawaii residents. The ensuing confusion and hysteria revealed that Americans are not prepared.
Say you need to prepare to shoot bullets into an asteroid and suck up the debris kicked up from the blast, then tuck it away for safekeeping.
