A physicist creates an AI algorithm that predicts natural events and may prove the simulation hypothesis.
A wide-scale examination of early Neolithic human skeletons reveals the violent history of a supposedly peaceful period.
American students are being compelled to specialize earlier and earlier. Here's what it takes to build a successful physics foundation.
Even with six months' notice, we can't stop an incoming asteroid.
Scenario-based learning makes employees active participants in their own learning process, better preparing them for the real issues they may face at work.
Wind farms seem less productive when scientists incorporate more realistic atmospheric models into their output predictions.
Scientists use high resolution microscopy and computer simulations to create first ever video of DNA movements.
Artificial general intelligence will not arise in systems that only passively receive data. They need to be able to act back on the world.
Experiments on suborbital rockets are revealing how to make a better iron furnace.
Creating an afterlife—or a simulation of one—would take vast amounts of energy. Some scientists think the best way to capture that energy is by building megastructures around stars.
They cost $1,400 and will make you feel like you’re always on a moving sidewalk.
A new study found the possible reason why some dwarf galaxies appear to not have dark matter.
A study finds that sex is "moderate intensity physical activity," similar to light jogging or leisurely swimming.
The Metaverse could be the most dangerous tool of persuasion humanity has ever created.
Astronomers possibly solve the mystery of how the enormous Oort cloud, with over 100 billion comet-like objects, was formed.
Perhaps wormholes will no longer be relegated to the realm of science fiction.
For many, it was just a successful launch like any other. But for scientists around the globe, it was a victory few dared to imagine.
Why does hearing sad music feel so good?
Justice is not blind to beauty.
Such massive, early supermassive black holes have puzzled astronomers for decades. At last, we've finally figured out how they form.
