A physicist claims to have formulated a mathematical theory that explains why the universe works the way it does - and it feels like 'the answer' Eric Weinstein's theory is the first major challenge to the validity of Albert Einstein's Field Equations.
Growing thin films out of nanoparticles in ordered, crystalline sheets, to make anything from microelectronic components to solar cells, would be a boon for materials researchers, but the physics is tricky because particles of that size don't form crystals the way individual atoms do.
A new interpretation of quantum mechanics is proposed according to which precedence, freedom and novelty play central roles.
Johann Gottlob Leidenfrost was born on November 27, 1715 in Germany. He went to college - not immediately, he was a baby when he was born - he went to college to study theology, but soon switched to medicine.

A team of astronomers led by Jose Dias do Nascimento has found the farthest known solar twin in the Milky Way Galaxy -- CoRoT Sol 1, which has about the same mass and chemical composition as the Sun.
From czarist times to the days of perestroika, the Russian Academy of Sciences was the pillar of the nation's scholarship, boasting the country's best scientists as members.
When a solar flare filled with charged particles erupts from the sun, its magnetic fields sometime break a widely accepted rule of physics.
As described in a paper in Nature , post-doctoral researcher David Patterson, Professor of Physics John Doyle and Dr.
A fried breakfast food popular in Spain provided the inspiration for the development of doughnut-shaped droplets that may provide scientists with a new approach for studying fundamental issues in physics, mathematics and materials.
LEGIONS of disembodied brains floating in deep space threaten to undermine our understanding of the universe.
