An ambitious new fleet of spacecraft could reveal whether space-time is smooth or chunky, and in doing so the ultimate nature of reality.
Paul Sutter received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011. After spending three years at the Paris Institute of Astrophysics, he is now a visiting scholar at the Ohio State University's Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics. Sutter is the host of several podcasts and YouTube series, consults for TV and film productions, and frequently makes public appearances discussing physics and astronomy topics and the role science plays in society.
A brand-new particle has possibly emerged and is altering the future destiny of our entire cosmos, a physicist says.
There are some odd little particles out there that are bound by the strong nuclear force, but physicists can barely get a glimpse of them before they flit out of existence.
A giant linear collider the size of Manhattan could finally help us find new physics, scientists argue.
Tiny ripples called magnons could lure even a fleeting, lightweight dark matter particle out of hiding.
'm a particle that really isn't; I vanish before I can even be detected, yet can be seen. I break your understanding of physics but don't overhaul your knowledge. Who am I?
A recent search for oddball supersymmetric particles, which could explain some of the weirdness of the universe, came up empty-handed.
Mad scientists through the ages have dreamed of holding the world hostage by threatening to destroy the whole thing. Here's how that could work.
These tiny subatomic particles, showering down from the depths of space, continue to surprise (and annoy) physicists chasing them.
For the precocious hunter of off-Earth life, the Drake equation is the ever-ready, go-to toolkit for estimating just how (not) lonely humans are in the Milky Way galaxy. But it's not useful.
