Hawking proved that the Big Bang was physically possible.
Cosmologists are heading back to their chalkboards as the experiments designed to figure out what this unknown 84 percent of our universe actually is come up empty.
A LIGO team member describes how the detection of a gravitational wave from a new source – merging neutron stars – vaults astronomy into a new era of 'multi-messenger' observations.
The gravitational wave itself is the least exciting part of the announcement from LIGO and Virgo. Observing this new source answers many longstanding questions.
We've all seen videos of satellites being blasted off into space - but once they're locked in orbit around the earth, how do we bring them back down?
The science behind why what your barista achieves at the cafe tastes better than what you can come up with at home.
The affective domain - motivation, interest and values and their inter-relationships - forms an integral component in facilitating learners’ construction of physics knowledge.
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) could help unravel the mysteries of antimatter and complete scientists' next model of the universe.
Evidence shows that otherwise high-performing female students under-perform compared to their male peers on certain questions in physics. We don't know why.
Ada, 7, wants to know why things close to the train windows zoom by really fast, while things further away seem to go by much slower.
At a time in the sun's cycle when space weather experts expect less solar activity, our star is going bonkers with solar flares and coronal mass ejections. What effects will Earth feel?
As companies make quantum computers available through their cloud services, take a look at what it means for computing to move beyond classical mechanics and into quantum physics.
Quantum computing is being described as "just around the corner". Is it?
If we could mimic spider silk, it could revolutionise the fibres we use on a daily basis.
Major airports around the world will see more frequent flight restrictions in the coming decades because of increasingly common hot temperatures.
Methods stemming from decades of research on disordered materials are used to describe algorithmic phase transitions, and to design new algorithms in machine-learning problems.
If a huge huntsman spider is sucked into a vacuum cleaner, can it crawl out later? Lucy, age eight, really, really needs to know.
There remain many mysteries that are beyond science. Does that mean that a God truly exists? A scholar gives reasons for this possibility.
New parenthood got our fluid dynamics experts thinking about what ends up in the diaper. They headed to the zoo and the lab to come up with a cohesive physics story for how defecation works.
Mathematicians make a splash with new theory that could lead to breakthroughs in 3D printing, climate science and forensics.
