When you think of "conservation," you probably don't imagine blowing up Jupiter and building an energy-harvesting megastructure.
Scientists shot protons at a deuterium nucleus to understand what the universe was like mere minutes after it was born.
The particle accelerator came to Chandigarh in India from the US in the 1960s, and was rebuilt with no prior expertise.
Researchers in Germany measured the time it took for a light particle to dislodge two electrons within the same molecule—the fastest event ever recorded.
A compound made of carbon, hydrogen, and sulfur was able to carry electrical charges with zero resistance at a temperature of 15°C, smashing previous temperature restraints.
“The wormholes we are considering are traversable wormholes, so theoretically spacecraft can travel through them,” said the lead author of a new study.
“Agents could have free choice to make any action they wanted and no paradox would arise because the events just adjust themselves to remain consistent," said study author Germain Tobar.
A merger with a black hole possessing an unexplained 'forbidden mass' created the first conclusive example of an intermediate black hole in the most massive merger ever detected using ripples in spacetime.
The discovery of the bridge is another tantalizing step towards observing the cosmic web: the vast network of dark matter and hydrogen gas believed to form the backbone of the universe.
Earth and Jupiter appear to give some passing spacecraft a speed boost, a persistent anomaly so mysterious and unexplained that its very existence is controversial.
In a new paper, scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory show that time can be reversed in a quantum system to recover scrambled information without it spiraling into chaos. Wait, uh, what?
“Turns out, pretty much everything we know in optics is out of the window.”
