The biggest, most expensive science experiment in the world might be losing all its dark matter. But physicists are looking on the bright side.
The kilogram isn't a thing anymore. Instead, it's an abstract idea about light and energy and fundamental universal constants.
We can't see it. It might not be made of normal matter. Our telescopes haven't directly detected it at all. But it sure seems like it's out there.
After these ripples in space and time pass through the universe, they may leave behind a sort of memory of their crossing.
Antimatter is made of waves, and physicists have proven it at the level of a single antimatter particle.
China plans to build a scientific research station on the moon in 'about 10 years' according to a state news agency.
Astronomers studying black hole SagA* have to deal with the weird, frustrating little star that lit up right between Earth and the black hole in 2013.
Astronomers watched a high-speed gas cloud slam into the atmosphere of the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
A team of undergraduate students at Drake University in Iowa is developing a magnetic shield to defend interplanetary astronauts from the intense cosmic radiation between Earth and Mars.
The international team responsible for the first-ever image of a black hole's shadow already has plans to take a better, more detailed image.
The huge team behind the Event Horizon Telescope already made news with their first image of a black hole. But they've got bigger ambitions.
Researchers have developed a new, unspeakably dangerous, and incredibly slow method of crossing the universe. It involves wormholes linking special black holes that probably don't exist.
Planetary scientists are calling on mineral physicists to help them figure out the strange chemistry going on inside super-Earths and mini-Neptunes.
Almost nothing in the black hole image surprised astrophysicists. These are the three biggest mysteries it left unsolved, and two questions it did answer.
Beresheet's moon crash was the first in nearly half a century. But back in the day, moon crashes happened all the time.
The ghostly 'quasiparticles' have barely any material existence, but physicists are still managing to manipulate them into uncanny shapes.
Lanthanum, diamond crushers and advanced computer models are changing the hunt for this extreme quantum mechanical effect.
NASA's TESS mission has, for the first time, detected a planet orbiting a star with visible starquakes.
Our world is full of chemicals that shouldn't exist. New research could explain why they exist anyway.
A particularly odd, spinning star has woken up, and it's spitting bright flashes of radio waves at us again.
Earth's vast magma oceans, roiling deep beneath our feet, seem to be pumping oxygen into the planet's liquid core.
Sometime in the last decade, something heavy slammed into the Martian atmosphere and blasted apart into a hard rain of superheated material.
Carbon dioxide emissions could wipe out one of Earth's most common types of clouds. That's bad news.
