Two geophysicists found a correlation between a slowing in the Earth’s rotation and an uptick in major earthquakes. Since the Earth has been slowing for the past few years, we might see more big tremors in 2018.
Matter and antimatter should have destroyed each other in the moments after the Big Bang. That they didn’t is yet another enduring mystery of physics.
Interactive map shows where you’d end up if you dug a hole to the other side of the earth.
Physicists create a mathematical model of a viable time machine
[DIGEST: The Guardian, Technology Review, Wired, New Scientist, Autoworld, Phys.org, ScienceAlert, Independent] While some people dream about the next iPhone, others dream bigger — much bigger. The first open-source blueprint for a practical quantum computer is now available. Of course, practical is relative: The plans could be used to build a quantum computer that is … Continued
Harvard thinks a female 23-year-old Ph.D. candidate may be the next Einstein.
Using a newly developed laser-base technique, scientists were able to cool a microscopic machine to previously unheard of temperatures.
The metric system is being fine-tuned to base all weights and measurements in a constants of nature
Physicists capture and measure elusive antimatter for the first time
