Gravitational waves have been detected by the twin LIGO detectors 100 years after Einstein's prediction. Detection also confirms the blacks holes are real.
China's physicists have managed to produce hydrogen plasma at 49.999 million degrees Celsius and sustain this temperature for 102 seconds.
Wendelstein 7-X (W7X) nuclear fusion device produces and sustains its first flash of hydrogen plasma. It took a 2-megawatt pulse of microwave heating to transform a small amount of hydrogen gas into an extremely hot (80 million degrees Celsius) low-density hydrogen plasma.
New explanation on why time moves forward, but not backwards, could challenge some of the long-held presumptions of time and the evolution of the universe.
Physicists found that the attractive force between antiprotons is similar to that between protons. Antimatter and matter obey the same law of attraction.
Magnetic wormhole that connects two regions of space has been created. It allows magnetic field to disappear from one side, then reappear on another side.
Raindrops break the laws of physics and are mathematically impossible. When we are condensing water vapour from a gas to make liquids, every cubic centimeter volume of water we have converted releases energy just from its changes of volume and pressure, but in order to make each square centimeter of the surface of that water, an input of energy is required.
For centuries, artists mixed silver and gold powder with glass to fabricate colorful windows to decorate buildings. The results were impressive, but they didn't have a scientific reason for how these ingredients together made stained glass. In the early 20th century, the physicist Gustav Mie figured out that the color of a metal nanoparticle is … Continue reading Plasmonics: Revolutionizing Light-based Technologies Via Electron Oscillations In Metals
Scientists have found dark matter interacting with other dark matter in an entirely new way other than just the force of gravity. This first potential signs of self-interacting dark matter suggests that dark matter may not be completely dark after all.
