Experiments cannot confirm what theory predicts about neutrinos. And particle physicists have no idea why.
Some of the coastal areas were not repopulated for millennia afterward, showing that there was a long-lasting memory of this tragic event.
The discovery calls into question the few things scientists know about these powerful astronomical phenomena.
Fire-retardant gels and slimes combine the best attributes of water and foam.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will study many dangerous cosmic phenomena, knowledge of which may help save humanity.
There's a whole lotta shakin' goin' on beneath the single plate of Mars.
Giant particle accelerators aren't a waste of money. They are essential for understanding the Universe.
The base rate fallacy may help to explain low reproducibility in various fields of science.
The spooky world of quantum mechanics might reach out and touch you — by mutating your DNA. Welcome to the weird world of quantum biology.
Researchers have discovered 830-million-year-old microbes living inside a salt rock on Earth. Could the same occur on Mars?
A new study of Martian dust gives insights into the ancient Martian climate. The findings hint at a wetter world.
"The pulsar sort of consumes the thing that recycled it, just as the spider eats its mate.”
The answer may lie in the particular way sand forms on Titan.
Data from the Zhurong rover suggests the Red Planet was wet more recently than we thought.
The high pitches from the flute and the harp would reach your ears before the notes from the tuba and the cello.
We have long thought that Pluto was completely frozen solid, but the discovery of cryovolcanoes challenges that assumption.
Equations that describe time travel are fully compatible and consistent with relativity — but physics is not mathematics.
Could we finally detect the elusive Unruh effect?
Europa may be difficult to access. But if a recent study is correct, its subsurface ocean would be more accessible than previously thought.
Extremely precise atomic clocks are not just of theoretical interest; they could help detect impending volcanic eruptions or melting glaciers.
There are pros and cons to sending interstellar messages to aliens that may or may not exist.
Volcanic activity caused the end-Triassic mass extinction 200 million years ago. The dinosaurs survived and rose to dominance.
Ancient helium-3 from the dawn of time leaks from the Earth, offering clues to our planet’s formation. A key question is where it leaks from.
