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.
Refined instruments reduce noise at the quantum level, allowing for discoveries of more distant gravitational waves.
A next-generation atom smasher would cost billions of dollars. Europe and China both plan to build one, but scientists are debating if it's worth it.
The new laureates discovered the first planet orbiting a solar-type star and improved our understanding of how the universe evolved.
The cloaked objects leave no wake.
Regular improvements in so-called optical clocks are setting the stage for a redefinition of the second and powering searches for new laws of physics.
A new paper proposes two experiments to test if the steadiest components in physics are really kind of shifty after all.
