We love physics in all its forms, from new research on mind-bending concepts like quantum weirdness and spooky action at a distance to the science of sounds and fluids to all the forces that push, pull, stick and slip. Here we tackle the macroscopic, the subatomic, the strange, the cool, the groundbreaking and the obscure.
For 20 years, scientists believed that gravity caused some popped bubbles to collapse; new experiments turn that understanding on its head.
The idea of a nuclear bomb accidentally setting the entire planet on fire was once a fear shared by many.
This video animation helps to answer a puzzling shower thought.
Science is an endeavor of trial and error. Can we find a better way to share the "erroneous" trials?
By overlapping materials with periodic properties, scientists can detect features otherwise too small to be seen directly.
Two physics experts answer a bewildering shower thought.
Two independent research groups have created the first superconducting quantum computers that can operate above 1 K, overcoming a major obstacle.
A small amount of water bound to the surface of the towel acts like glue to hold the cotton fibers together.
