Opinions differ about what recent measurements of a sound-trapping fluid reveal about light-trapping black holes.
An experiment caught a quantum system in the middle of a jump — something the originators of quantum mechanics assumed was impossible.
The stunning emergence of a new type of superconductivity with the mere twist of a carbon sheet has left physicists giddy, and its discoverer nearly overwhelmed.
In a world seemingly filled with chaos, physicists have discovered new forms of synchronization and are learning how to predict and control them.
Dark matter may occasionally interact with minerals in the earth, leaving telltale tracks that physicists hope to decipher.
Experiments suggest that exotic superconducting materials share a “strange metal” state characterized by a quantum speed limit that somehow acts as a fundamental organizing principle.
Oil droplets guided by “pilot waves” have failed to reproduce the results of the quantum double-slit experiment, crushing a century-old dream that there exists a single, concrete reality.
