A gamma-ray burst, the most powerful kind of explosion known in the universe, may have triggered a mass extinction on Earth within the past billion years, researchers say. Read the associated APS Physics Focus article.
Researchers have accelerated particles to unheard-of speeds using a record-setting compact accelerator. The device was developed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and is small enough to fit on a kitchen table. Read the associated...
CERN's Large Hadron Collider will be turned back on in March and a few weeks later will start smashing sub-atomic particles together again at nearly double its previous power, helping scientists hunt for clues about the universe.
Physicists measure sulphur hydride superconducting at 190 Kelvin, a result that, if confirmed, will change the future of superconductivity research.
Scientists say they may have discovered a possible dark matter signal coded in the X-rays emanating from two bright objects in the sky. Read the associated APS Physics Viewpoint.
