Astronomers have discovered the oldest cluster of galaxies ever seen.
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
The KATRIN experiment has turned up a new, more-precise-than-ever measurement for the barely-detectable neutrino mass.
Physicists have proposed that a trio of particles called Higgs bosons could be responsible for the mysterious vanishing act of antimatter in the universe.
This mysterious matter was predicted from Einstein's theory of special relativity, but physicists can't seem to find it!
A new, hours-long Hubble study of the collision site revealed never-before-seen details of the neutron-star merger
A pulsar 25,000 light-years away is wobbling in a weird way. But Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted it more than a century ago.
Astronomers have detected a neutron star system blasting X-ray light at Earth and detected a rare, months-long pattern in those light bursts.
The team of researchers that captured the first direct image of a black hole was honored with an "Oscar of Science" — the 2020 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics.
The universe's most massive objects are crashing into each other, and they're leaving a rain of gold and platinum behind them.
The largest physics detector on Earth hunts gravitational waves. But it needs to be really, really quiet to find them.
A new paper uses data about the structure of the entire universe to measure the mass of one of its smallest, hardest-to-study components.
Three giant gamma-ray flares have been detected in the last 40 years. A new paper on magnetars cracking themselves open could explain why.
"UniverseMachine" churns out millions of unique universes to study dark matter and the evolution of galaxies.
