Stephen Hawking's Most Provocative Moments, From Evil Aliens to Black Hole Wagers

The famous physicist was fond of making scientific bets and predictions, from the nature of black holes to the end of humanity.

Stephen Hawking, Famed Physicist, Dies at 76

Hawking's scientific claim to fame was his revelation that the universe began in a singularity, an infinitely dense point of spacetime.

Q&A: Jogesh Rout

What's it like being a theoretical neutrino physicist working on the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility?

Stephen Hawking reveals what existed before the Big Bang

In an interview with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, iconic physicist Stephen Hawking recently revealed what he believes existed prior to the Big Bang. "Nothing was around," said Hawking, who fortunately elaborated on this point....Show More Summary

MIPT physicists tune a spin diode

(Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology) Physics modeled a spin diode, placing the device between two kinds of antiferromagnetic materials. Turning those antiferromagnets layers changes the resistance and resonant frequency of sandwich.

More Organisations Cut Ties With Physicist Lawrence Krauss

The shining star that was cosmologist and theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss' long-spanning career continues to dim in the wake of allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour, first reported by BuzzFeed News last month. More »      

Linear Algebra: A Course for Physicists and Engineers

(De Gruyter) In order not to intimidate students by a too abstract approach, this textbook on linear algebra is written to be easy to digest by non-mathematicians. It introduces the concepts of vector spaces and mappings between them without dwelling on statements such as theorems and proofs too much. Show More Summary

New view on electron interactions in graphene

Electrons in graphene—an atomically thin, flexible and incredibly strong substance that has captured the imagination of materials scientists and physicists alike—move at the speed of light, and behave like they have no mass. Now, scientists at Washington University in St. Show More Summary

Physicists observe long-sought nanoscale phenomenon

Preparing the perfect nanoscale sandwich from oxygen-based ingredients was no picnic.

Physicists tune a spin diode

A team of physicists at MIPT has offered a new design of a spin diode, placing the device between two kinds of antiferromagnetic materials. By adjusting the orientation of their antiferromagnetic axes, it is possible to change the resistance and the resonant frequency of the diode. Show More Summary

Einstein letter fetches $100,000 at Jerusalem auction

A letter penned by legendary physicist Albert Einstein discussing one of his groundbreaking theories sold in Jerusalem Tuesday for over $100,000 as part of trove of documents that went under the hammer.

Physicists lay groundwork to better understand the birth of the universe

(University of Maryland Baltimore County) Sebastian Deffner at UMBC and Anthony Bartolotta at Caltech have developed the first techniques for describing the thermodynamics of very small systems with very high energy -- like the universe...Show More Summary

How are hadrons born at the huge energies available in the LHC?

Our world consists mainly of particles built up of three quarks bound by gluons. The process of the sticking together of quarks, called hadronisation, is still poorly understood. Physicists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish...Show More Summary

Elusive Higgs-Like State Created in Exotic Materials

Two teams of physicists have figured out how to create a "mini universe," which could help researchers understand the strange behavior of deeply quantum systems.

Researchers Devise A New Way To Solve Long-Standing Mystery About The Universe

We know that the universe is expanding, but a strange discrepancy in just how fast that expansion is occurring continues to confound physicists -- and make them wonder whether there's some new, unexplained physics afoot. More »     ...

Six decades of cosmology

"Cosmologists are often wrong but never in doubt," Russian physicist Lev Landau once said. In the early days, astronomers began by observing and modelling stars in different stages of evolution and comparing their findings with theoretical predictions. Show More Summary

Physics Week in Review: March 3, 2018

There was tons of exciting physics stories this week. Among the highlights: long-sought evidence of first stars forming may have implications for dark matter research; physicists created a giant mega-atom stuffed with other atoms; and scientists verified the quantum Zeno...

ERC Consolidator Grant for fundamental calculations on strong interaction effects

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Particle physicist Professor Harvey Meyer of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) has received a grant from the European Research Council supporting his research on fundamental questions of physics with the help of highly complex calculations.

Solution to the hyperfine puzzle in reach

Last year, physicists at TU Darmstadt cast doubt on our current understanding of the interplay between electrons and atomic nuclei, and are now upping the ante by proposing a solution to this so-called "hyperfine puzzle." New measurements of the magnetic properties of bismuth atomic nuclei are now published in an article in Physical Review Letters.

Physicists build bizarre molecules called 'Rydberg polarons'

Using lasers, U.S. and Austrian physicists have coaxed ultracold strontium atoms into complex structures unlike any previously seen in nature.
