Astronomer Wendy Freedman suggests that the latest observations of red giant stars could be closing the gap on the Hubble tension.
From the forces that keep athletes twirling and sliding, to the weird laws governing the world of the very small, to the far-out concepts of time travel and alternate universes, physics covers a lot of interesting territory. Here, Live Science keeps you abreast of all the fascinating physics discoveries.Physics
Astronomers think the undead husk could transform into a neutron star — a totally new way for it to evolve.
The researchers hope to use their apparatus to probe why large objects do not exhibit quantum effects.
Physicists analyzed data from the first ever gravitational waves detected to prove Hawking's theory, and think that even more could be discovered from studying the ripples in space-time.
The researchers say that they want to use the survey to better understand our own place in the universe.
The Dark Energy Survey just released its most comprehensive results. But did they really prove Einstein wrong?
A new map of the local universe created with machine learning reveals filaments of dark matter connecting galaxies.
The supermassive black hole in the center of our galaxy may not be a black hole at all, but rather a fluffy ball of dark matter called darkinos.
A letter written by Albert Einstein to a rival physicist, including a rare example of the famous E=mc2 equation in his own hand, has sold at auction for $1.2 million.
Quantum entanglement is one of the uber-bizarre phenomena seen when things get itty-bitty. Here's a look at how entanglement works and why it's so weird.
New observations help astronomers hone in on a long-standing mystery about where cosmic rays come from.
Astrophysicists are using the simulation to learn how stars form, how they arrange themselves into galaxies, and how the heavy elements that are vital to complex life are forged.
From the beginning of the universe to the present day, it's one of the few things we regard as regular and unchanging. But is it really so constant? We take a look at the physics of time.
