Her work has led to some of the most important advances in math in the last 40 years.
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.
China has built the world's first robotic, partially submersible boat for launching sounding rockets — a technology that will help meteorologists better understand the atmosphere over Earth's oceans.
Genetic modification purposefully alters the genetic makeup of organisms through controlled breeding or via genetic engineering technologies such as CRISPR.
The device, built to be portable enough for use in space, produces a beam of laser light that changes less over time than any other laser humanity has created.
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.
Stratolaunch will continue to work on the world's largest airplane, but the company will abandon plans for its own rockets.
A team of neuroscientists have produced a series of amazing, detailed images of fruit fly brains using a brand-new combination of imaging techniques.
